    Many of you know me well, some do not...but I hope soon to count you among my friends.....

    My friend Tim died today....he had been home for three days after a heart valve replacement surgery.....

    The surgery was quite successful....and he was discharged home and doing very well.

    For whatever reason, he had a seizure and did not stop...and he died at his home....

    This is the last email he sent me....
    "Dear Julia",

    "Can the deaf hear? Can the blind see? Can the mute sing? If you ask me, I say yes, if dreams come true....As I look around I see many leftover broken dreams...".

    "To succeed you must practice.
    So stand up and live your dream, it is there for the taking."

    "Life and dreams are like finely cut diamonds, there are many faucets. If one side should get jades and tarnished all you have to do is turn it a little and you will find a side brilliant and new....".

    "I need some peace of mind...those sweet clean mountains call to me....I will be home at ---.---.----. I will be back in the city on the 2ND.
    For now, I leave you with a page of my life."

    PS. "Anyone have a map and I compass?"
    "....now where was I...... "

    Thanks Tim, for the page, and the song.
    Thank you for touching my heart....
    I will see you in the sunset.

    Thanks everyone....
    I rejoice that he touched my life with his words, happiness and wisdom.

    He lived his life well...and he never took a second for granted...

    The words in his songs made your heart sing...

    Julia I am sorry for the loss of your dear friend. I'm glad you had someone to touch your life that way. Special friends like that don't come around often.
    Take care. Thinking of you.
