Yesterday we received tragic news about our good friends the Filichias son Tim Jr. (In the middle) He was traveling back to BYU from Mesa and was involved in an accident and killed. Yesterday was a very tough day for us as our thoughts were on the Filichias and their loss. This was not hard at all for me to see the Lords hand in this. Tim was not your normal guy, he was a young man that never wavered in his beliefs. He spread the Gospel in many ways, but mostly through his example, his music and the way he could talk to ANYONE. He made me feel like a good friend (I always wanted to set him up, but rarely could find a girl I thought was good enough, and then when I did, he was attached) My last memory of Tim was this summer as Bill and I were dropping Kayla off for Ambassador of Light practice, he came to our window and we got to talking about his future and school and girls. We had extra Taco Bell and asked him if he was hungry, so he hopped in the back seat with Tessa and helped us eat. We had a good time watching Tessa flirt while spilling Taco Bell everywhere. Tim is so much like his dad, and that was something he was proud to be. Some words to describe Tim are: Every bodies friend, happy, missionary, perfect son, performer, ambitious, example, caring brother, FUNNY, strong testimony, family man, talented, Christ-like, soft-hearted, caring and so many more. Kayla always said that's the kind of guy she wanted to marry and now it makes a little more sense why Heavenly Father didn't send Tims wife, the heartbreak for a man like this might have been too much for a wife. Filichias, we are praying for you and thank you for the amazing young man you shared with the rest of us.
