Tim Bensinger, 1957-2008

Too many obituaries on this blog. At least Tim's was expected, and we can consider it a blessing he was with us until 2008. He was one of the most cheerful high school buddies I had, and all those who worked with him told stories about the kind words he had for everyone. His family had a tough time since the summer of 2007, when he was diagnosed with brain cancer. At least Tim left with a smile, and left those that knew him with a smile on their faces. See you on the flip side, buddy.

Tim's face is very familiar, even though he's changed since high school. I may have known his face, but not his name. It's a lovely elegy, and my eyes well up just with the sense of loss, a person loved and admired, a life gone.
