I was so sorry to hear of Tim's passing. So many memories of growing up with Tim and his family. As he used to tell people, Marta and I were in every class together until Junior High. As teenagers, we used to ride our bikes to Tim's house in the summer to have so many fun times in the pool. And oh how many memories from the BC Ski Club trip that 19-year old Tim and Marta made to Aspen, Colorado with Tim's sister Cindy in tow. Thinking of both Jim Clair and Jim Swanson and your families. I know how important (and proud) Uncle Tim was. May you rest in peace, my forever good friend Tim. Love, Marta (and Mark) Kwiatkowski
