Timm, Seidel

Two years ago you answered the call and climbed aboard the chopper Extortion 17 by name, We miss you every second of every single day, but are so proud of the man you became. The date will always be etched in our hearts — “86-11,” And we will never forget you and your 29 brothers who sacrificed it all and went to be warriors in heaven. You let us all know how much you loved your life as a Navy SEAL, But to friends and family you were a soldier doing his job, not a “big deal.” We try to live strong and make our lives worth the life you gave, As we appreciate our freedoms that you fought so hard to save. You were a great son,

brother, uncle and friend, And gave us so many great memories right up to the end. So rest now soldier, your job on earth is done, As now with the angels you do run.

Love you forever and always, Mama, Pops and family
