I have just learned that my dear friend, Tim Jensen (who commented here frequently as The Eclectic Cleric) died yesterday morning. Tim had been battling cancer for the past 18 months.
When we were last together in June, we got into about ten one-sided arguments (me crabbing at Tim, Tim good-naturedly tolerating my bitchiness) during a trip to Tim’s beloved Nantucket. I knew he was very sick but he was so hopeful. He moved back to the West Coast immediately following our jaunt to Nantucket to be close to family and passed away peacefully yesterday morning (the hour of worship, how appropriate) after a very rapid decline.
His last act of friendship to me was to send Max three wonderful chewy toys in the mail.
Tim, I love you, I will miss you, God bless you.
