My heart goes out to your family. May God bless and keep you. I have known Tib almost all my life and I loved him dearly. When I was a younger I spent a good bit of time went Tib and he always tried point me in the right direction to go in my life,some of his advise I listen too and some I did not. O how I wished I had listen to all his advise.He was a very wise man with a lot of love and knowledge . I will always remember Tib for the good man he was and for the his kind heart. The love he had for horses and his love for life and every one. I know the lord has a special place for Tib, because I know he was a Godly man who loved his family and friend's and loved the lord. May God bless and keep you all.

Golden Valley has lost another wonderful neighbor, cousin and friend. Tib will always be remembered with that mischievous smile and nature. So sorry I was unable to attend the service, but please know that my heart is with you during this sad time.
