Thyne family fund

Tim and his family have suffered a tragic loss. Tim's sister Katie Thyne, a police officer in Newport News, Virginia, was killed in the line of duty during a routine traffic stop on January 23rd, 2020. She was 24 years old and leaves behind her partner, two-year-old daughter and a loving extended family. 

Tim's family will need support in many ways. It's hard to know how to offer support in times like these so we've set up this fund to help with practical things like covering food, childcare, funeral-associated costs, memorial donation or whatever else is needed so Tim's family can focus on each other.

This article has additional advice on how to support someone who has lost a loved one. Thank you for supporting Tim and his family.
