This was no ordinary life. This was a life well-lived and well-loved .... A life that will be deeply missed. I had the pleasure of working with Tim at Gladeview Health Care Center in CT. He was a leader who led with compassion, integrity and - as is often needed in health care - humor!! My prayers for his friends and family. May he Rest In Peace always - at the right hand of God. :-(
