    Tim!!!!! OMG! I never thought I'd see him here! Tim graduated with my brother and was crowned homecoming king in 2004. I love this guy. He's the sweetest thing and he's really very proud of his accomplishments. YAY! TIM! Look at you all famous now!

    I LOVE THIS STORY!!! Where's Tim's Place located because I would love to go there and show my support, I'm sure a lot of people I know would too. Perez I hope you put more articles like this one up for us to read. The ones that just make you smile and remind us that there is still so much good in the world.
