Gr8ter Remembers Tim Blackburn
So many of us have grieved someone who was taken from this world too soon. Today Gr8ter honors the life of Tim Blackburn. Below is a message from his family who wish for just one more day with him. Their lives are forever changed by suicide.
This is so hard. We just want you to know that there is not a day that goes by that we do not think of you. One day you will tell your story, and it will be part of our story, and we will all come to an understanding. We really hope you are at peace and no longer in pain. Know that you are loved by many.”
Top of Tamarack
On September 24th, Tim will be one of our many honorees at Top of Tamarack, Gr8ter’s mental health awareness and suicide prevention event. Our honorees come from all walks of life. Different paths, different experiences, different interests. And while they all may have lost their lives to suicide, it’s the powerful impact they had that unites them. Their lives had value. Their legacies are important. They had laughs that were contagious and smiles that lit up rooms. They were someone’s friend. They were someone’s family member. They were loved. We pick up the torch they left behind to ensure their powerful flames never go dark. Sharing memories of who they were and why they were so adored allows their light to shine on.
Join us on September 24th 2022 as we honor Tim and many more who were lost too soon at Top of Tamarack!
