TIMMY WAS A BRAVE AND HONORABLE MAN. I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM FOR THE PERSON HE WAS. A LOVING HUSBAND AND FATHER, HE WAS A TREMENDOUS PERSON; YET HE WAS A HUMBLE MAN WHO HAD A SPECIAL KINDNESS ABOUT HIM. AT THIS TIME, HIS WIDOW, AGNES HURLEY IS GRAVELY ILL AND NEEDS OUR PRAYERS. SHE SUFFERED SO MUCH IN HER LIFE AFTER THIS TRAGEDY. SHE LOVED TIMMY WITH ALL HER HEART YET WAS NOT BITTER; SHE ALWAYS HAD SO MUCH LOVE FOR US ALL. AGNES IS A COUSIN OF MINE, MY MOMS FIRST COUSIN. I REMEMBER HIS FUNERAL AND WILL ALWAYS RESPECT WHAT A POLICEMAN'S FAMILY GOES THROUGH IN THEIR DAILY LIVES.
