  8. Tim,
    My memories of your Mom are special. Every one of them includes you with you. As I write this I can see her smile and it was a great one. What I was privileged to witness was always warm and loving between you both. I could see, and feel what a wonderful relationship you had. The first time I met her was at one of your promotions and she lit up when she spoke about how proud she was of you. I thank you for sharing a delightful part of your legacy with me.

  9. Tim, I meet your mother in 1976 ,in a hair salon where I was working . She came in every Thursday night after working all day . She was such a classy lady , always looked her best . Brenda & she would sometimes come together. Everyone thought they were sisters . I also remember going to your home on legion drive , she always made me feel welcome. She & I were alike when it came to cleaning house . She was so proud of you , growing up , in the ROTC. Your mother was special to me , she would share lots of stories about your dad , Ted , Brenda & of course you . You where her shining star ( most babies are ) she also loved living with you on Old Salem Rd . She loved living with her granddaughters. After that with her other grandchildren, Tracey, Jessica & Jason too !! Like most grandmothers , we love those grandchildren. I remember when you brought her to see me at my hair salon , all the way from Alabama . I think it was my last time I saw here . She was a sweet lady !! She sure didn’t want that grey to shine threw!! Only your hairdresser knows . Another sweet memory is the week before she went to be with the Lord . She called me & couldn’t remember doing it , that was God letting me know her time was near . I talk to her & I really think she knew who I was . We told each other that we loved each other before we hung up the phone .That was a very special time to me & I’ll never forget that call . Sorry I couldn’t be with you all , due to my knee replacement. , but my heart & prayers are . Love , Ann Skelton
