  1. Tim you will be sorely missed ! You are now in our Creator’s memory til you are back on Earth as promised by the Almighty God Jehovah.
    John 5: 28’29–Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.

    Revelation 21:3,4–With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
    Til that day you return, I will miss you very much, your cousin Mark Beaver

  2. I enjoyed talking with Tim every night at Frito-Lay. He would always come to mop the crewer’s office and I would hurry and push all the chairs and trash cans out into the hallway for him. And I would sit in the hall and he would tell me what he and Norma were up to . And I would tell him what I was up to.
