That's terribly sad. And only 29 years old.

We certainly are most grateful for his service and he will be in our thoughts.

it's always rough. i have lost quite a few friends, 3 before i was deployed and a few others while i was in country. the best way to find out when he's coming home would be to get in contact with his unit back here in the states.

Even though it is not battle related, he is there serving our country, I am saddened.

Wow that is sad. I feel for you man. My father lost his best friend in Vietnam.

That just plain sucks!!

Maybe a millimeter of weak tissue stood between life and death. This is just a reminder of how fragile life is. It certainly makes you reflect on your life...

Brain aneurysms suck. A woman I worked with complained of a headache in a meeting, collapsed, went in to a coma and died 2 days later. She was like 35 or 40. A very nice person and in good health. One monent she's fine the next she's a good as dead. It really sucks.

Sorry for your loss. Our loss really. The USA has lost a fine man.

Find out which church ward he was part of and contact them. They will know or they will let you know when they do, I bet. I hope I have the Mormon terminology right.

Damn.

It happened to me in March. Sitting there watching the TV. Juan Solorio and I were roommates, friends, drinking buddies, rappelling/other stupid shit buddies, and both of us had gone to basic and AIT together at Ft Benning. He was killed in Mosul by a roadside bomb. He left behind a wife and two kids. Weirdly, some of us who had seen or heard from one another in 10 years have gotten together three or four times since this happened. I still miss my friend.

Sorry to hear about your loss... this scares the crap out of me. I've been having headaches in the same spot behind my right ear for some time now... better get it checked out, I'm the same age.

Sorry man.

It certainly puts things in there proper perspective.

I wish the very best for his family. They deserve great blessing and some good fortune in the coming year.

I'm sorry to hear of your buddy. My hometown lost another son to the war in Iraq a few days ago. He was a Marine that was killed when an IED was detonated near the vehicle he was riding in.

I lost my dad on 2-24-04 with a brain aneurysm. I'm sorry to hear about your friend. This shit pisses me off to no end. Good people die and the scum of the earth are free to walk around and live to be 100. My dad was a great man and it sounds like your friend was just the same.

I am sorry for the loss. He is another hero of mine added to an ever growing list of people who serve and die for liberty and their fellow man.

Prayers sent.

I'm sorry to hear the news. It sure does look like Tim was a fine man. May God comfort his family and friends. May He hold Tim in His everloving hands. Amen.
Link Posted: 12/20/2005 9:43:34 AM EDT
Good man! If you're gonna go, might as well go down in the warzone.

Doctors would later tell Tim's family that his death was only a matter of time. The aneurysm in his brain would have killed him no matter where he was or what he was doing. Because he succumbed in a war zone, in the Army, his family will receive additional insurance and educational benefits. ... Tim had been back in Iraq for less than two months and was becoming eager for his return home when, on Wednesday, he collapsed during a morning workout session at Camp Tiger, about 75 miles west of Mosul near the Iraq-Syria border.

I'm very sorry to hear of the loss of your friend.

Godspeed soldier, God bless

I know its tough, but hang in there. One of my best friends who I thought of as a big brother growing up was killed on November 22, 2005 by an IED in Afgahnistan. His name was Matthew Steyart. I was supposed to spend Thanksgiving with his family, but the news came the day before about Matt's death and ended up not. Anyways, here is an image compilation i put together.

Prayers out for you and your friends family. I'm always saddened to hear about the loss of another one of our brave soldiers.

Sorry for your loss.

At least when he died, he was living in a way to make a difference.

No one can take that away from him and his family.
