I'm going to try and keep this brief, I was fighting depression since February of 2009. All I did was go to work then straight home to bed, for whatever reason I told the wife I wanted to go see the altereds run. Once we got to the track I wanted to go back home and climb in bed but then I heard the crackle of this nitro burning beast which turned out to be Tim. I felt something strange, it was my spirit lefting up and seeing Tim do his burnouts really made me smile and for a moment it made me forget about the demons of depression. After that night I could not wait to see Tim and OFAA race again, I was like a kid counting the days till Christmas, it seemed like it took forever for the next race to come. Again as before seeing Tim race had me smiling ear to ear and once again I forgot about my depression and just a few weeks later I finally sought help. During the winter I was pumped up that I would get to see Tim and OFAA race, but when we went he wasn't there so we figured that he was taking some time off, but we knew he would be back. Then a few Sunday's ago I was on Yellow Bullet when I came across Tim had passed, I thought how could this of happened to Tim? I wanted to thank him for lifting my spirit when I was at a bad time in my life. After reading everyones comments on his tribute site I found out that the way my life was touched by Tim many others lifes were touched the same way. I just wanted to share my story of Tim with his family, friends and fans. BTW at his viewing I finally did get to thank him and I know he heard it. Thank you for letting me tell my story and I'm so for my poor grammar. God Speed Tim !!!!
