So sorry to just hear of Tate’s passing. Hard to believe that he and his great lifelong friend Tracy Dixon died so close together. Two good men! Godspeed my friend.

- Bobby Everette, Savannah , Ga


Dear Shiver family, I send my sincere condolences. Even though, I did not know Tate personally, I met him several times through the Coffee Bluff Marine Rescue Squadron various activities. My next door neighbor, Ed Smith, spoke so highly of Tate and I was truly impressed when I finally met him. He was so jovial, quick-witted and very kind. It is certainly my understanding that Tate has now moved to heaven and is reaping his rewards along with my late husband, Donald. I bet they are fishing and having the best time ever - cooking up some fish with Jesus, on a beach somewhere! I am praying for your entire family as you begin your grief journey and adjustment to life without Tate. God bless each of you. Sincerely, Virginia Love (Coffee Bluff M.R.S. Ladies Auxiliary).
