Timothy's Obituary

Timothy was a good man. He was a good man because he never gave up on Phillip. He never tried to fight. He wasn't like most other people. This world needs more people like Timothy. He was born a good man, and he died a good man. That hurricane took him God took him too. It was his time to go though. He was a normal man who worked with boats all day. I think that's how knew how to survive.
