I can't get him out of my mind! I loved his Irish happiness - his sense of fairness, honesty and pride in his country. I LOVED his quick wit and intelligence. He always made me sit up and take notice because while he was giving numbers or statistics - he was also giving what we called in high school "Government classes". He was "one in a million".
When someone dies suddenly like Tim did I ALWAYS think, "Wow, if he had known this was his LAST day, would he have done anything differently?" " Wow, if he had known two months ago, what would he have done? That's the millon dollar question, isn't it? My heart goes out to his wife and son...........sudden deaths are surreal. You NEVER really accept that they are gone..........
So another "one in a million" has gone to the happy hunting ground - he's gone to where Molly Ivins, Ann Richards, Barbara Jordan, John Kennedy and his brother Bobby are.......THEY all sure could set up a grand "Meet the Press" wherever that might be!
Adios Tim............vaya con dios, and I'm sure you have.
