Dear Ranae, we send you our deepest sympathy with the passing of Tim. When I told Andrew he just slumped over in sadness. Tim was such a great person with a smile and a laugh that just made you feel good and warm inside, and he was especially a great person of faith that touched all of us and so many people throughout his life. We were truly blessed to have had him be a part of our lives; that will not be forgotten. We send you our prayers, love, and strength at this time. Please know that our love will be with you and always be a part of Tim too. The Schultz's - Dan, Jill, and Andrew Schultz

Ranae and family our thoughts and especially our prayers are with you in this time of sorrow. When I sent word of Tim's passing to Ethan his response was, 'It's impossible to understand some things!' I responded that that's true from our perspective but for those of who knew him it was easy to understand why God would want him home with him!
It's very easy to know that Tim is in heaven!
Remain strong in the knowledge of God's love for you. Isaiah 54:10
'Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,' says the LORD, who has compassion on you.

Ranae, Victoria, & family - As you know, I am so very sorry for the loss of Tim. Our family has always felt so welcomed by him. Loved seeing his smiling face at HyVee. He always too the time to stop and talk with us and we know how much he means to Victoria and Sophia. May God's loving arms wrap around you and your family during this very difficult time. Take comfort knowing that while you are left sad and mourning on this earth, Tim is being exhaulted and celebrated in heaven.
Revelation 7:15-17
And he said, 'These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore, 'they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.'
