Our thoughts and prayers are with Jackie and the wonderful family she and Tim have together. May this come through even though we can't show our care personally. (Also may Bev, Susie & Cindy feel our hugs.) We thank God for the way The Schweighart Family lives out their faith by caring and serving.

I want to share a memory from high school. I am a year younger than Tim, and we never shared classes or socialized. But I knew him as the older brother of my classmate, Alan. I must have seen Tim in Centennial’s halls or on its fields during the two years we “overlapped” during high school, but I have no memories of him except for this one, lasting memory. In my Junior year I was in the cafeteria during lunch. There was the usual hubbub of talk and laughter; the clatter of dishes. The cafeteria had two doors on opposite walls. As I sat facing the west door, in walked Senior, Tim Schweighart. I’d never seen Tim in the cafeteria during that hour. But, as it turned out, he wasn’t there for lunch. He was simply passing through. I remember a book was tucked in one hand, at his side. And I don’t know how else to say this, but that man walked into and through that cafeteria like a lion. There was such calm and posture, confidence and poise, with his head erect and his eyes looking straight ahead, that I stopped eating and watched. I remember it like yesterday. Such a small, fleeting thing! Yet, for myself, so powerful. That’s it. You might laugh that this story is so simple and so short. It’s okay. As a sixty-six year old man, now, even I chuckle at my seventeen-year-old self. Yet, there have been times in my life when it was important to show calm, to demonstrate confidence, and Tim’s example always came to mind. Thanks, Tim. Thanks for the example. We never met, but I believe we will. I’ve got a story I want you to hear.
