Please except my condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.

I am so very sorry about the passing of Tim. I did not know him, but I am writing because I saw his obituary in my local newspaper (I'm from Heath). Tim's service in South Vietnam and his bile duct cancer caught my eye. My father also battled a bile duct cancer and is a Vietnam Vet. I felt that I had to write this to share information that I have learned over the past few years. Bile duct cancers are common among Vietnam Vets due to exposure to liver flukes and/or Agent Orange. There is an organization that is trying to collect information regarding Vietnam Vets afflicted by this horrible disease, so that they can get justice for these soldiers and their families from the VA (Veteran's Affairs). Their website is: http://cholangiocarcinoma.org/vietnam-veterans/vietnam-veterans-survey/ They also have a Facebook page https://m.facebook.com/Vietnam-Vets-and-Cholangiocarcinoma-or-Bile-Duct-Cancer-143420339017522/ My sincere condolences to Tim's loved ones. May you find peace in this trying time.
