What a lovely tribute for Tim at the art studio.
Quite obviously, he was loved by many.
May he find his peace now in a much less hectic place!!!
Rest peacefully... .

Tim - listening to the last jazz album we debated the merits of, Bags and Trane. I was proud to get you to admit you liked *some* Coltrane. As far as I'm concerned you are here listening with me and you always will be. My good friend.

Driving with you listening to Kind of Blue with your sunroof open was the last time I remember feeling like life needed not a thing more -- that remains right here with me and I am so thankful. The little moments that with time you realize were really the big ones.

I'm gonna miss you but I'm gonna find you...on whatever the other side is. It's something I look very much forward to.

Peace to you, brother.
