Shultz Family, I am truly saddened to hear of Tim's passing. I know that I don't have to tell you what a kind person he was but he was one of the kindest people I've ever met. Some of my fondest memories of him were chatting about my days behind the plate umping games. We will be praying for comfort for you all during this time and in the days ahead.

Oh, Tim, just when we all were getting reacquainted with each other again.....Thankful for the little time that we shared over the past year.
