I was thinking about Daddy Tim just today. I didn't realize it has been a year already.  I can't believe it's been a year, at first, but then I think some more and it could of been 20 years ago or it could have been yesterday. I never get used to learning my friends have died needlessly. It's STILL time for a cure! Moffie would back me up on that.

Thanks for posting this Lis.  I was looking at my calendar, just before you posted this yesterday, and realized that it's been a year.

He is most certainly missed, but not forgotten.

"Pray for whirled peas." He always made me chuckle when he said that. "Kisses on all your openings" was another favourite. Thanks for reminding me, Joe. Remember in the old FuseTalk days when we had rose icons and he would always bestow a least a dozen on new members?

I loved his stories of growing up as the child of missionaries in the Kenyan bush. Getting naked out in the wilderness as a teenager with his Masai contemporaries and watching lions from behind a tree.

He preached the gospel of hiv like no one else could. I miss him terribly.

We're thinking of you, Daddy Tim, and missing you every day. Rest in Peas. ;)

I miss Tim terribly. I remember first meeting him, or so I thought, in Montreal.

He had a grand memory, and remembered we were acquaintances many years before in the San Francisco Bay area.

I miss our long-distance musings, his chilld-like rapture when he saw a vintage car he admired, and his sharp wit.

I also loved his remembrances of his childhood in Kenya. We also shared an abiding distrust of Christianity.

Rest well, dear friend.

HUGS (and a dozen roses)

I got those roses from him...one of the first "greetings" I received on this site way back (it seems to me) in 2005!  I miss him too.  I had the joy of spending an entire day at the Montreal AMG with him as I rode in his van when we made a day trip to Quebec City.  Naturally, he led all of the conversation.  That trip to Montreal was the first time I felt completely normal after my diagnosis... he was one of many angels that gave me that gift.  For that, I will always treasure my memory of him.

While I understand the "distrust" so many have of religion (and I have some myself) I still firmly believe in a glorious afterlife free from the infirmities of mind, body and spirit that plague us in this life.  I also believe that Tim is one of our many saints that will greet us when our time comes and we go to meet them.  This thought always gives me hope.

Thanks Tim!

I miss you more than words can say, your honesty, your support, your hopes that the young ones would eventually listen, your determination to tell it how it really was, even when you were called out on it you never gave up, and I loved your chocolate cake.

You will be forever in my heart...sending you a dozen roses.

I remember walking to the CN Tower in Toronto and I was walking to fast and poor Moffie couldn't keep up.  The trip to Niagara Falls was most memorable indeed. In Montreal he was just terrific and we had a great time there and in Quebec City.  I wish he were able to make more trips but it was difficult for him to get around.  He was one of a kind and loved by so many.  He was a huge help to so very many folks in living with HIV, a great teacher.  I too remember Tim's roses.

Always missed and never, ever forgotten, RIP dear Moffala.

When I first joined, Tim seemed like the very mayor of AM. I savored both flowers and the glasses of wine he'd toss my way. He was, by far, the most august member of the Spin Cycle team and a beloved friend and adviser.

I have never erased his number from my phone: it's my way of coping.

Tim was truly a warrior in the battle for life after HIV.

He fought that battle because he felt it was the right thing for him to do.

One can not miss someone that is continually within ones heart.

The truly Loved ones are too close to us to be missed They are always there.

Bucko, I wish everyone could, as you have done keep fond memories and never erase anything

Dearest Tim,

The hole in my heart, from your departure, may never heal.  I miss you terribly as we connected in so many ways.  I feel your spirit at times and I long to hear your voice... your laughter.  How fortunate I am to have a friend like you.

As always, kisses on all of your openings.

All my love,

Joe
