Subject:  Susie G. lost her Tim
Message:  It is a sad day in Gainesville, my sister's husband departed his earthly bonds today around three o'clock. Tim Goodwin loved Susie from their high school days. They both tried to make a go of it with others, but found each other when those relationships ended.

Tim had been disabled for over ten years. He was an X-Ray Tech at the hospital in Gainesville for most of his life. We've always believed that exposure to the machines there brought on the ailments that forced him to retire...but there is no proof that was the case.

He had a rather strange sense of humor, sometimes I didn't know if he was kidding or not.
His health never allowed him to make it to a Gathering, but he enjoyed the sample he received when Cowboy Johnson came by one day and spent some time singing and putting new strings on Tim's 1938 Martin Guitar.

I believe he was 60 years old.

Keep my little sis in your prayers and send her all the good thoughts you can spare. I'll never know how so many bad things can happen to such a good person. Susie has had more than her share and that's just not right.

She has maintaned through the years of Tim's illness, and I am very proud of her and love her deeply.

Got's speed Tim.
