This was a VERY cool kid that I had the pleasure of rafting with. His parents said that rafting was so great because he felt most like a "normal" kid when he was boating (he had a strong upper body but severely impaired lower body). He was an inspiration to all that knew him and he will be missed. Peace and blessings to Timmy and his family.
Let this be a reminder that the power and serenity of the river give us great peace, tranquility, excitement and energy, and we should remember to treat that power with the utmost respect and humility.
