Today I learned that a highschool friend of mine, Tim Tuke, passed away from brain cancer. He was married with two children; a three year old boy and a baby girl. My heart broke as I thought of his family and what a huge loss they are experiencing. He was so young- only 31. We spent a lot of time together our senior year as he was in both Advanced Theater and Musical Productions with me at Davis High. Tim was the best kind of person; he never complained, was always ready to help and I don't think I ever saw him without a smile. He will be missed by many.
To honor Tim today, I played with my son. We built Leo's for over an hour. It is something I get to do (and often take for granted), and I know Tim would have loved to do that with his boy when he turns 8.
Tim, thanks for making the world a happier place.
