Two Quick Memories of Tim

I’m afraid I can’t claim to call Tim my friend, but only because we ever met face to face a couple of times.  Like many people, I got to know Tim through what he shared with our community.  I read his blog, watched his videos, and occasionally interacted through Skype.  In fact, I watched the Java series he did for NotesIn9 only 2 weeks ago.  I think that’s why this has hit me harder than perhaps I would have thought.  I have his voice in my head.  I even had a quick chat with him on Skype right after I finished the third video to tell him that he totally blew my mind.  I was so happy and eager to try what he had shared.

I have two other memories of Tim I’d like to share.  The first comes from Lotusphere two years ago after I did my Spark Ideas session.  For those who were there, I struggled through it.  Later in the day we passed in the hallway and he stopped me and shared a word of encouragement.  Simple.  Nice.  Kind.

The other memory of Tim that I want to share with everyone comes from Lotusphere this past January.  We happened to cross paths in Kimonos well into the night and struck up a conversation.  Paul Withers joined us too.  During the conversation Tim shared Yubixi with me.  Most of it went over my head, but it was so cool, and I could tell he was really excited about it.  He also shared a story from his GBS days about enlightening a client about the things they could do with Domino.  It was a great story.  Toward the end of the conversation some of the people I had entered Kimonos with, and had ignored for close to an hour, had decided to leave.  I received a couple of hugs and as one of the girls who hugged me passed Tim reached out and said “I don’t know you but I want a hug too.”  Laughter.  Polite.  Spontaneous.

I wish I got to know him better.  Just from the small amount of contact I have had with him, I will miss him too.

Rest is Peace Tim
