    Rest in Peace my dear precious friend. You fought so hard for your sunshines. Your whole family were your sunshines and Tim the love of your life and soulmate. You loved fiercely and were very protective of the people you loved. You were strong, a warrior in fighting your battle with much optimism. I will miss our late night talks near the end and glad I could be there for you. We cried and laughed together through many calls. I will and have kept my promise to you. I thank God for blessing me with such a friend as you. Fly High my Angel Friend. I know you will be with us everyday. Till we meet again, I love you and will keep you forever in my heart.

    I will keep my promise to you that your sunshine’s will never forget you. We knew that this time would come but it’s so hard to believe that you are gone now. I’m at peace knowing that you are not suffering anymore. Now you are with your mom and loved ones that have past before you. God has you in his arms now and you have his comfort. You will be reunited with all that you love and that love you one day.. peace and love is what I’m sending you. You are at rest now.

    Tim and family, my deepest condolences for your loss. I was blessed to have known Autumn and been gifted with her love of life and living life to the fullest. Truly to have known her was to have a friend forever and enjoyed a real friendship. Tim, she brought joy and love to your world and Megan’s and for that I am truly grateful. Alyssa and DJ, only time will lessen the pain of your loss for I too was afflicted with the loss of my mother to the big C at the age of 17. Find strength in your memories of living a life of fullness together, good times and bad. Tim, I miss our times together but have lots of good memories. I cherish them all even the arguments we had at mill as team maint., even those with McGarity. Stay well, brother and be safe. Your friend always.

    Autumn was such a sweet friend to me! She knew my husband and all his family, however I never formally met her. We communicated through Facebook and was so encouraging and always there to talk to!
