West Point, 1989
Be Thou At Peace

I knew Tim not just as a fellow West Pointer but also as a fellow Connecticut resident. I remember him as the "tall guy" in C-4 with always a cool way about himself. We both benefited from close CT parents to visit us on the WP weekends, and it is hard to believe that almost 15 years had past since I last saw him. Yet I remember Tim now with such clarity that I am surpsrised at how deeply I feel for his passing, especially as a father myself and knowing Tim had 4 little ones.
Tim, life is too short already and I cannot help feel that you had so much more life in you. Your death has committed me to the 15th year reunion to mourn you amongst friends once again. It will feel good to speak and hear your name amongst others so saddened by your passing.
I am also hopeful of a way to meet your parents once again and affirm to them what a fine person you were, fine enough for me to be able to see your face with perfect clarity now after 15 years have passed. You left an impression on me so I cannot even imagine the impression you left on the others that knew you best.
Bless you my friend. West Point and Connecticut both lost an alumnus to be proud of. Drew Bartkiewicz (E-4, Roxbury, CT)
