Dear Dear Dani mou and Family,
No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing that your dad is now resting in the arms of our Lord. When we lose a loved one here on earth, remember Dani that we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. Please take comfort in knowing that you and the rest of the family have an angel to watch over you just as dad did when he was alive. Also remember a person that departs from this earth never ever truly leaves, for they are still 'alive' in our hearts and minds.....through us, they live on. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that dad will be spoken about, recalled and remain ever present in everyone's thoughts and conversations...... just keep remembering/speaking about him as you do with your grandfather, another tremendous man. Dani mou, our heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family. Giving you one of my hugs and lots of kissies on your face. xoxox

I am so sorry to hear of my cousin Tim's passing. Although I hadn't seen him in many years, from family gatherings when we were children, I remember him as a kind and gentle boy with that same sweet smile. My heart breaks for his wife, children, his sisters and brother and all who knew and loved him. I'm sure he'll be dearly missed, always loved, and never forgotten.

Anne, I was shocked and saddened by the news of Tim's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the Children that he loved so much. Whenever he spoke of you and family, I knew that his heart was filled with love for you all.
I served with Tim (Sgt Blackmore), I was his friend and Platoon SSG in Germany. I can say he was an outstanding Soldier and NCO (Non-Commisioned Officer). I could always count on Tim to get the job done and done right. He will be missed. You and I met when you all came to Florida I believe to visit Jeff who was then serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, Clearwater Fl. God Bless you all at this time of mourning. My prayers will be for Tim, you and his Children.
