What a year it was. Most of it was spent in a fair amount of pain, culminating with back surgery in August, which led to an awful lot of time on the couch. But not all was bad, and even a herniated disc couldn't keep me from enjoying a lot about Milwaukee in 2011. Here's to an even better 2012!


A few thoughts on the passing of Tim

Published Nov. 23, 2011

An obituary is about the person who died and not about the feelings of those left behind.
