Celebrating the life of Timothy Paul Cunius
Thank you for signing Timothy Paul Cunius's Guestbook
We grew up together. I remember you, Kay, Michael, Jessica, and myself over at Nannie and Papa Hayes' house playing and hanging out as kids. Time and distance may have separated us, but family is family. Know that you are loved and will be truly missed, but your energy, your spirit will never disappear and will forever be a part of our universe as your memory will stay in our hearts, just as God intended. Farewell, my brother, until we meet again. God bless. Love, thoughts, and prayers of hope, strength, and sympathy to the rest of the family. May God keep us during this time.
