One Memory to “John Timothy “Tim” Heater”

  1. Terry says:

    It’s so hard to let you go….I wish I had the power to have changed your life, I know I didn’t do much better, but you always wish more for your baby brother. I’ll always remember you sittin in the puddle on 22nd Pl. Or coming to the back door, your face covered with red paint and mom almost passing out. Or the time you pitched your 1st Little League game at Desert View. You struck 9 batters in a row and then walked 5 in a row. Shortest LL pitching career in history. And my favorite memory; we were at the Verde river all the drinks were gone and you tripped over a case of A-1 while walking in the river. We will love you forever, Terry
