Re: Not a Rider But we ALL knew him

Tim wrote a great book that covers our fathers drive to make the the sons & daughters life better than theirs.......this is a principle that is waning in the USA. His father outlived him thats gotta be tough.

Re: Not a Rider But we ALL knew him

I have really enjoyed his honesty and straight forward approach to politics!
If it looked like a Duck...walked like a Duck...safe to assume it was a Duck!
And he wasn't afraid to say so!

I will miss him.

Rest in Peace.
