  4. shirley & Kim,
    I am so sorry to learn of Tim’s passing – I just found this, in December 2016, while looking for you all to become facebook friends. You were such wonderful neighbors, when we lived in Palestine, and I have so many good memories of spending time with you and the “wah-wah” when I’d come over to visit. You have my absolute deepest sympathy & prayers!
