Timothy was the catalyst for DC's implentation of the "thanks system" and the recipient of the first once sent. His perspective and contributions were appreciated and improved the community.

Thanks for that too; Timothy.

Oh my gosh. I don't know how I missed this thread, but I only now saw it. How sad. Other than getting off on a wrong foot Tim and i had many PM conversations. We were very much on the same page as far as politics goes and even cooking too. 59 is so young, terrible, terrible news. May his memory be for the blessing.

So sorry to hear this news :( I too enjoyed Tim's post and had some spirited conversations with him both public and private. I will miss his posts. This certainly reminds me that the folks here on DC really do feel like family. Thank you so much Snip, for sharing with us (as hard as the news is to hear).

I'm glad you were such a good friend to him, I am sure that your friendship enriched his life. Rest in Peace dear Timothy.......

Tim's sister Daphne sends many thanks for all the kind words. Gave her the link to this thread so she can read it for herself.

I have not been on here in quite some time, and then I read this. I am so very sad. Tim's posts were always a joy to read. Please offer condolences to his sister from me too. I hope she is comforted by her fond memories of him.

Wow, I've been away a while but I did slip in once (in feb) just to leave tim a hello message' When i saw he wasn't posting I wondered about him. This is very sad news. He would sometimes pm me about something I posted and or something funny. I could tell he was a good person. I know it's been a few months but my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

today i've been going through some of timothy's old posts. he was a dc member for only about 1/2 year but during this time he initiated 70+ threads and offered prolific commentary on a wide assortment of topics on a daily basis. it seemed he was often the very First One There to offer solace, encouragement or compassion wherever it was needed by our forum members going through hard times....reading tim's daily thoughts causes me to miss him even more deeply--he was finally living a life so vibrant and full of joy and promise and ever better things to come. timothy was truly a man seizing the day--i only wish he'd had more of them....

He sure was passionate! I think Bucky Tom's post said it well. I remember defending him on a couple of issues, he sure loved his raw fish, had it down to a science.
