As Tim aged in life, he finally began to sit and smell the flowers. With a Pepsi in one hand and a White Castle burger in another. Whether scratching a scratch off lottery ticket or winning in Scrabble… you may see him at the Blackjack table or sitting at a campfire, enjoying the dancers and the beat of the drums at the powwow, planning the next big road trip or island to set sail on a cruise to with the grandkids and wife and alas sitting in his favorite recliner watching CNN.
