A fitting tribute

"We need you" indeed

Tragically, townie and long time DPW employee Timothy Banks passed away--as sudden as it was surprising--on Thanksgiving Day.

Timmy meticulously parked his car in a certain spot at the DPW.

Nobody parked there today.

UPDATE: Wednesday morning 10:30 AM. The normally overflowing DPW parking lot is all but abandoned as fellow workers attend the funeral.

Rest in peace Tim. I wished that you had more time here with us, but GOD had different plans. You will be missed by many.

Amherst lost Emily List on Thanksgiving too- The Gazette has nice write up on her too short(but very full)life.

Thoughts headed out to both families.

Indeed. I never met Emily, but I knew her vicariously through her mother--my favorite professor.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
