Well, well, well. I went all the way there from the opposite side of the city and in the snow only to find that someone named Rick Mullen could not, in fact, come. So I read Rick's poem for Tim instead and talked a little bit about Tim but mostly just read what Rick wrote. Tim, despite being the opposite of me in so many ways, never ceased in his support.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Walter.
I really felt horrible not being able to get there, though I assumed Mary Ann Miller would have something for Tim in my absence. I'm really glad it was you reading my poem. I dare say it was better than if it were me reading it!
Really glad you came out.
