Timothy's Obituary

Timothy was a kind hearted west indian man who saved phillips life on the cay.

Timothy was born in 1869 and died in 1942.

Timothy died because when the hurricane hit the Cay and he covered his whole body around Phillip and saved his life by the power of the hurricane and wind hitting Timothy, that and he was very old.

What made Timothy special is that he wasn't an ordinary man, he had expierence in the ocean so he knew what to do and he taught phillip expierence and now phillip is brave and itsn't really selfish or a wimp anymore.
