  1. Majid Ali, M.D. :

    John and Kathy,

    Love and spiritual surrender are the same dimensions of human existence. The pathways to both are often lined by suffering. Suffering of loss of a child can be known only to those who lose a child in this journey.

    Kathy , John, you are children of God just as Tim is. Three of you have been and will always be together. God’s grace is beyond my imagination. As for as it can imagine, God’s grace will forever keep you together in His love and compassion.

    With prayers for family and friends,

    Majid Ali

  2. John and Cathy,

    With our sorrow for your loss,

    Anne and Tom Geffert
