    In the 37 years that I knew Michael ( Tim) I would say that he wasn't just fond of recycling- he was passionate about recycling, repurposing, and restoration. He often spoke about writing a book sharing all he had learned on the subject. He and his wife Linda ( who I knew for 44 years) were both ,"collectors" of many things, including cats! My heart will surely miss them. Praying that God's Peace and loving Great Comforter gently surround Tim's family and friends at this difficult time but it is also a time to celebrate for God says "I know the plans I have for you...." Love and condolences.
