Helen says:

I and family are very disturbed and saddened by Tim’s death. It is totally senseless.

D. Rode says:

I will be watching the service and am grateful that the family has allowed TV coverage. Such an amazing family to share this grieving process with the community.

I have a major request of CHCH. Please, can you just give us a full screen without all the other “stuff” around the video screen? For such a very special event, I really only want to see the service, not all the other news in the side bars.

I would really appreciate a reply.

Heather says:

I did not know Tim, his family or anything about him or his life. I caught the news story and last w/end when I drove along #52 through Copetown I saw all the vehicles along side the road. I saw news vehicles and then their cameras. When I drove back along that road about a half hour later, I noticed people with flyers in their hands. The news people had left. I got home and searched the name ‘tim bosma’. I was horrified at the story. I prayed for him many times. My prayers were not answered, but at the very least, his family has the answer to their question. My prayers are with you, especially his wee daughter. My daughter waited 33 years for answers. God be with you all… Heath

Shonna says:

I did not know Tim neither … and only learned of what happened to him days after he disappeared and I have been following the story closely. I’m so sorry to Sharlene and her family for their deep loss. I will be watching the memorial service via the link from CHCH … and I want to thank Sharlene and her family for allowing us to share this time with them.

My heart hurts so much for Sharlene, their baby daughter and the family … I can’t imagine the heartache and devastation they are going through losing Tim … a husband, father, son and friend.

I pray God gives them special comfort tomorrow for the Memorial Service for Tim … and that He gives them strength and courage to face every new day forward. Love and Blessings.

Sharlene, my heart and prayers are with you at this time. I have prayed for you and the family daily since we heard this dreadful news. Only the Lord Jesus can give you His peace at this time and give you the strength to carry on. His promise is “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.:”
I trust you will find comfort in His presence.
I have watched the CHCh channel all day today, and the Memorial Service for your dear Tim was beautiful. You were so brave as was His sister, your parents and Tim’s parents.
We will never forget you Sharlene or your dear baby girl. You will always be in our payers, as you were in our Bible Study this past Friday.
My love to his dear mum and it was her birthday, and to his dad too.
You are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve.
God bless you and keep you close in your time of sadness and loss
“Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am faint;
O Lord, heal me, for my bones are in agony.
Turn, O Lord, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.”
