I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Tim. I am a pilot and I have decided to volunteer with PNP. I only hope I can contribute as much as Tim did to the beautiful cause of saving all theses loving animals.

I just found PNP book at Barnes and Noble 2 days ago and was so happy to feel the love healing these animals.
One who did this work I did not know,
Blessings upon this Soul.

All the pilots who put their lives on the line to help with animal and human rescues are of a very special breed. So many of us would not have been able to adopt, get medical treatment, or save the life of a loved one if it weren't for these extraordinary pilots. Timothy's family was lucky to have him. We have all lost a hero.

I am so very sorry for your loss of this kind and generous young man. I look forward to meeting him when I arrive in Animal Heaven.

Posted by Paige Garberding - Seattle, WA   March 20, 2013

I just want to express my deepest sorrow and condolences for your loss. Every PNP pilot has that "somthing special" about them that most people don't have. So even though I didn't know him or know you, I just want you to know that there are others out here in the world sending peace, love, comfort, and support your way.

Posted by Sharma Adams - Tampa, FL - Wife of a PNP pilot   March 12, 2013

My husband, David, was also a volunteer pilot for Pilots N Paws. He died in a plane crash (also unrelated to a rescue mission) November 18,2012. I just want to let you know how very sorry I am for your loss. Every person, every family's experiences are different in ways; but grief itself is universal. I choose to celebrate my husband's life and to remain positive for the most part. But I know, all too well, the gut-wrenching feeling of missing him every day. If there is anything I can do to help or support you in any way, please respond to this email in a way that I may contact you. May God bless you with His peace and comfort.

I had the privilege of being Tim's flight instructor from his private to commercial certification. A real consciousness yet fun person to fly with. Tim was my first success story as a CFI, taking him from the ranks of a student to a proficient commercial pilot. RIP

Although our group never met Timothy, himself, knowing what he has done for this wonderful organization is staggering. He was a brick of the PNP and has been an inspiration to others which in turn has made a lot of people in the rescue community and the animals themselves benefit from his being. Thank you for sharing him.

I am so sorry for you loss. I always found great encouragement knowing there were pilots willing to help the cause of dogs in transporting them to other places. What a fantastic gift he gave... Now on wings of Eagles he is flying in heaven, and God has given him a special place with all the animals.
Rest In Peace, and I'm so sorry for your loss.

Sincerely,

Tim, Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel. Jr. will always be in our hearts and minds, in every smile, in every breath, in every memory of the good and happy times he spent with you, Mrs. Joy and your daughter. You raised a fine young man, you did your part, rest assured you were both the best parents to Jr. and you should be proud of that. May peace be with you and don`t forget we care about you and love you <3>
Jr. will be forever in my heart.

Although I did not know Tim, I know him. Animal rescuers are a special breed. Compassion, wit, empathy, joy, sorrow, relief, all in one day, heck in one hour when saving an animals life. All of his family need to celebrate the fact that they all had a part in shaping this wonderful persons character, so much so that he gave of his time and money to help a four legged creature that he would only know for a few hours. People like Tim are a blessing to a community, to a family, to friends and to the world. Thank you for sharing him.

My heart breaks with the news of his death; truly the world looks a little bit more blue than usual. People like him made a difference in the making of this earth and life a better place and he will surely be missed.

Please forgive me for being bold, I am a true advocate for animals and I am training to be a psychic and I feel the need to say to you (who is reading this from his family) that he needs you to know that he is fine. He is a bit sad to see you sad, but he knows that you will be more than just ok. Laughter will come again, almost unexpectedly.

He did not suffer...

I pray that you and your family find soon the comforted heart and the peace of mind that come from Heaven and God Himself. You guys are in my prayers.

In the Lord's name, may God bless Tim in his new life, and his family with peace during this difficult time and may his presence always being felt by those who knew him.

There may be no trees to rest on
There may be no clouds to ride
But we'll have our wings and the wind will be with us
That's enough for me, that's enough for me."

My sincere condolences. Tim was truly an angel on Earth for his work with animals. His love and dedication towards seeing to it that animals in need were transported, was a gift from the huge heart he had. I am sure his legacy will not be forgotten and he will continue caring for animals in Heaven. There are so many people who talk about helping special causes and never do anything...Tim stepped up and did so many animals the huge favor of making sure they made it to loving homes. It takes a special person to do that. RIP Tim. You will be missed.

To the family, friends and people touched by Tim's work with PNP, I send my sincerest condolences. I did not know Tim, but I read about him often on FB. I have been involved in rescue for over 10 years, East Coast Italian Greyhound Rescue to be exact. I have done everything short of laying down my life for babes around this country by giving them a place to regroup, feel safe and loved, and get into a mental space of being able to move on to their forever home. With people like Tim, I wouldn't be able to do that. I have transported throughout New England, but never to the level that Tim did. He was a true hero through and through to countless babes and families. Without him, I am sure many babes would be lost to the system, and those families would not have the babies that they have today. I just want to stress how sorry I am that you have lost such an awesome human being. I will send positive thoughts to you, and to the babes that will need Tim in the future. What an extraordinary person! With much respect, Raven

He made a tremendous impact to the world, using his piloting skills to grace the world with kindness and concern. I also lost a good friend and fellow PnP pilot a month ago, the pain seems unbearable, but knowing he has earned his next set of wings, his "wings of an angel" and that he gave so much can only comfort us during these times.

My heart goes out to Tim's family and friends. I've been involved with aninal rescue for many years and with, Pilots N Paws, since almost the beginning. What an amazing man to give of his time to be such a huge part of saving so many animal's lives. Without him, so many wouldn't have made it to rescue. You will be missed by so many including the rescue volunteer community who never had the honor of meeting you. I have no doubt you've walked many homeless animals across, The Rainbow Bridge, and have a special place in Heaven for caring so much for God's creations, human and animal.

I didn't know Tim personally, but I know that many rescue pups did, and I like to think that Tim is somewhere where "our dogs went", and that he is surrounded by those that love him, and who he loved, and that he was welcomed with joy and open arms. He had a heart as big as the world, and compassion for the weak, and a passion to help those that could not help themselves. He has surely earned a special place in Heaven. My sincere condolences to his family, he was special and will be much missed in the rescue community.

Most sincere condolences to Timothy's family and friends and all in animal rescue who are saddened deeply by the devestating loss of Timothy.
I am actually in Calgary, Alberta, Canada (had to chose Alabama for a state to submit condolences) , and have been crossposting for shelter animals for years. We all are so grateful for all who are a part of Pilots n Paws. Bless Timothy for all the lives he saved, the happy smiles he was a part of making happen, for all the tail wags of joy for helping yet another furry find a fur-ever home who other wise would not have without 'wings' to get there.
Timothy shall never be forgotton.
Bless you Timothy.

An Angel whispered
take my hand and
come with me
you're work here is done.

I went away to a place
where there's no tears, nor sorrow
only laughter and smiles,
there will always be a Tomorrow.

As I move amongst the clouds.
I'll look down and smile upon you,
while the angels
sing a heavenly song.

I am not alone
all who went before
are here
they awaited my return.

I know you'll grieve
and wish I was still here
I am here in the memories
you hold dear.

I hope that we all take a chapter from his book and live the life we truly desire. With every dog Timothy rescued, in every family who adopted those dogs, Timothy's selfless light shines on.

Tim came through for us so many times. GSRFL sends Prayers on Angels wings. May he Cross the Rainbow Bridge with all those waiting.

Rescuer's Rainbow Bridge

Unlike most days at Rainbow Bridge, this day dawned cold and gray, damp as a swamp and as dismal as could be imagined. All of the recent arrivals had no idea what to think, as they had never experienced a day like this before. But the animals who had been waiting for their beloved people knew exactly what was going on and started to gather at the pathway leading to The Bridge to watch

It wasn't long before an elderly animal came into view, head hung low and tail dragging. The other animals, the ones who had been there for a while, knew what his story was right away, for they had seen this happen far too often.

He approached slowly, obviously in great emotional pain, but with no sign of injury or illness. Unlike all of the other animals waiting at The Bridge, this animal had not been restored to youth and made healthy and vigorous again. As he walked toward The Bridge, he watched all of the other animals watching him. He knew he was out of place here and the sooner he could cross over, the happier he would be. But, alas, as he approached The Bridge, his way was barred by the appearance of an Angel who apologized, but told him that he would not be able to pass. Only those animals who were with their people could pass over Rainbow Bridge.

With no place else to turn to, the elderly animal turned towards the fields before The Bridge and saw a group of other animals like himself, also elderly and infirm. They weren't playing, but rather simply lying on the green grass, forlornly staring out at the pathway leading to The Bridge. And so, he took his place among them, watching the pathway and waiting.

One of the newest arrivals at The Bridge didn't understand what he had just witnessed and asked one of the animals that had been there for awhile to explain it to him.

"You see, that poor animal was a rescue. He was turned in to rescue just as you see him now, an older animal with his fur graying and his eyes clouding. He never made it out of rescue and passed on with only the love of his rescuer to comfort him as he left his earthly existence. Because he had no family to give his love to, he has no one to escort him across The Bridge."

The first animal thought about this for a minute and then asked, "So what will happen now?" As he was about to receive his answer, the clouds suddenly parted and the gloom lifted. Approaching The Bridge could be seen a single person and among the older animals, a whole group was suddenly bathed in a golden light and they were all young and healthy again, just as they were in the prime of life.

"Watch, and see.", said the second animal. A second group of animals from those waiting came to the pathway and bowed low as the person neared. At each bowed head, the person offered a pat on the head or a scratch behind the ears. The newly restored animals fell into line and followed him towards The Bridge. They all crossed The Bridge together.

"What happened?"

"That was a rescuer. The animals you saw bowing in respect were those who found new homes because of her work. They will cross when their new families arrive. Those you saw restored were those who never found homes. When a rescuer arrives, they are allowed to perform one, final act of rescue. They are allowed to escort those poor animals that they couldn't place on earth across The Rainbow Bridge."

"I think I like rescuers", said the first animal.

"So does GOD", was the reply.

I would like to offer my deepest condolences to you, Timothy's family in your time of sorrow. Not only have the rescue, foster, adopting world lost a true champion, but the animals themselves have lost a hero! It may seem like such small consolation in terms of what you have lost, but please know there are thousands who grieve with you! You are & will continue to be in all our thoughts and prayers as you suffer through this horrible tragedy. You are not alone, and neither is Tim as I'm sure he was met with an over abundance of sloppy, wet kisses and was knocked to the ground with huge paws upon him, happy to see their friend again as he passed by the Rainbow Bridge. Tim will forever be in the hearts & minds of animal lovers the world over. <3 tim rip><3>

I also only knew of Tim through his work with Pilot's and Paws. What a wonderful young man to think of using his skills to help the animals find their forever homes. Lives were blessed because of what he did. A great loss to all and my sincere sympathy to his family. But be proud of what a great young man he was.

Words can not truly express the loss of such a caring and compassionate individual. Although I have never met Tim I can honestly say the world would be a better place if everyone followed his example of compassion for one small moment. His time with Pilots N Paws proves there is good in this world if we only take the time and do just one thing.
