    Moira and I and our children and grandchildren offer our condolences. It was great to see you all when we celebrated your Mom’s life in Campbellton and it is good that you all had some time together. Life is fragile as we all know and losing a family member reminds us all that our time here is short. I will always remember Tim from our summer vacation times as we ran up and down Callaghan’s hill. There are many fond memories. Our prayers are with you all.

    Our condolences to our Canadian Cousins. Tim was called home way to early in his life. Such a happy, caring and giving person. God does everything for a reason even though we don’t always understand. Know that he is at peace and is in a better place then we are. He is now smiling down on his family. We will all meet up again one day. Your Mom and Dad are taking good care of him once again. Our thoughts, prayers and love are always with you all.
    Love Cookie Falkner and Family

  27. A word for a friend

    Cheers to a fierce friend and unsurpassed compadre Tim Callaghan.
    Many a epic journey we have travelled together brother. Now, we have to travel these roads individually but still we will not be alone.
    It has made me cry to go through the old photo albums that span over the last 3 decades, pictures that captured the stellar times we shared, crazy people we met and the wondrous sights we have witnessed together.
    From our first meeting in the 80’s, we became fast friends, exploring the back country and foothills of the Rocky Mountains to the paved streets of Calgary on mountian bikes.
    Many a camping trip were made to Kananaskis, Banff and beyond, ski trips to the cold slopes of Sunshine, Lake Louise and Big White and certainly the many miles and hours we shared on road trips through out Alberta and BC made us so tight for many years.
    Our regular steak and lobster feasts at the farm you rented in the early days were legendary even when the barn dog stole the live Crustaceans out of the cooler.
    You were my best friend when I met Jodi, my best man when I married her and the best of brothers when our daughter Mackenzie was born. You have always have been and continue to be a large part of our family.
    We have always been comfortable in both the noise and the silence we shared and you have always displayed what a good man inspires to be.
    Never have you been far from our thoughts and we wish the best on your next path foreword.
    We shall meet again to continue this friendship we shared and let it be said ,
    you continue to inspire…

    We will miss you..
    Jodi and Bill Rendall
