    No matter what age our children become it is always hard to see them go before us. Our deepest sympathies at this difficult time.

  2. Carl and Billie Reynolds says:

    We are heartbroken for you, Larry, Cindi, Jill and Laci…….this was so unexpected for you all. Tim went thru so much these past 25 years – it’s just so sad that he had to suffer so, at the end, and nobody even knew why. I will always remember him as that cute little cousin of mine who was adored by his G’ma and G’pa Frauchiger and then when he was at UW for his surgery when Bev was there and finally when you lived 3 houses away from us – how he would stop by to visit us now and then on the 4 wheeler and his cooking stories that you shared with us. He sure loved his little girl….you could see that whenever he talked about her. Your lives will be so lonely without him but he’s no longer suffering and you can bet he’s hanging out with the rest of our families who went before him. I’m sure they were waiting to welcome him with open arms. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love and ((hugs)), Carl and Billie

  3. Dan TSCHUDY says:

    Larry, Cindy and the entire Frauchiger and VonMoos family,
    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your son, Tim. Tim was way too young to succumb. The family is the most important thing in our life and to lose a child is unbearable.
    Although not living close, as we’d like to share in your loss, we are still connected by our friendship and wonderful childhood growing up in Wisconsin. Just remember, friends are forever and at a time like this they come out of the woodwork to help in any way able to offer condolences or help in any way for our friends.
    Please call or email if there is anything that I can personally do to make this transition from having Tim present to the loss of him. That empty feeling in your stomach that will never go away. We are friends forever and anything to make Tim’s loss more acceptable by my help is offered to your entire family.

    Your friend,

  24. Shane French says:

    I didn’t hear about the seriousness of Tim’s recent medical problems until he had allready passed. I was devastated. Tim was my best friend growing up, and again later on in my life when I first moved back from Texas with my son, Harley. Loosing Tim is a tragedy for me especially because I had lost touch with my old friend over petty difereces. I regret not telling him I loved him like a brother. He was a fun loving person. He was great with kids and had a great growling laugh that could put a smile on the face of even the grumpiest of grumps. Tim, you will be greatly missed by me and Harley. Thanks for all the years of laughter and comraderie. God bless you and my deepest sympathies for Cindy, Larry, Jill, and Laci.
