Tim's memorial and celebration of life was absolutely incredible. Some estimated as many as 700 people at the dive park for the tribute. So many firefighters, sheriffs, harbor patrol and divers in attendance. Our friend Chris Blehm gave a very moving eulogy that had tears flowing from my eyes... if tears were freshwater, I could have solved our drought-related water problem. The flotilla of boats to the Little Farnsworth dive site where Tim's ashes were scattered was unbelievable. In addition to the 40-50 vessels present, helicopters from the Coast Guard, LA County Sheriff and LA County Fire flew overhead in tribute. The reception was well attended as well and featured several different bands. After it ended, dive buddy Andrea and I sat up at the house drinking wine and talking about Tim and their time both in New Zealand (where she certified Tim OW, AOW, Rescue and DM) and here on Catalina until well after midnight.

I have posted a few pictures of the day's events on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/bill.bushin...=1&pnref=story
