Hail and Farewell, Dear Tim – Gone too soon.
Mary Beth is a cousin of Terry, Katie’s Mom, and has attended all our Bowlathons and Tim joined her when they started dating. Tim and Mary Beth became our most regular bowlers. They traveled the farthest, with loads of friends in tow, as well as a new family member on board or on the hip every few years. More often than not, they won the award for most money raised. Besides a fun family event, the Bowlathon became a mini family reunion for us with the Gaige crew as their family grew and they traveled so far. At least, as soon as they got their soft pretzels. Always so friendly and supportive of our cause, Tim was easily embraced by us all. Our hearts are collectively broken by his loss, but a bit bigger because we knew him. Tim’s spirit will live on through Mary Beth, Annabelle, Rosemarie, and Declan. They will remain always in our thoughts and prayers.
