Confirmation Copy, Page Memorial Service

June 1, 2002

I promised that I would write you again as soon as I had new information about Tim Page and here I am.

I am still shaken by the events of recent days. Every day seems different now with the sudden departure of Sterling's Planning Commissioner Tim Page.

I have found that the internet provides quick communication with many people in a short time. I knew about the message "LOL" for laughing out loud and now I have gotten "CLAB", for Crying Like A Baby from some who knew Tim.

For those of you who never met Tim, he was an unrecognized 2,000 hour volunteer for Sterling.

I am getting calls and also making calls. Thank you to the Christian Community, the Re-Max Select Property people, the many elected and appointed local officials, and the Loudoun County Republican Committee for pulling together like an army on this topic of sharing our grief and giving tribute. Thank you to all of you, and to all who have done this, for doing that. Please keep sending e-mails and making phone calls to alert friends about Tim.

I have found that while e-mails do get coverage, it is the phone calls that reach out and share. Especially if you know someone who only has e-mail at work or did not turn on the computer. Or does not have e-mail.

Tim was more than qualified for the job he accepted as Planning Commissioner. And as I indicated in an earlier message, a top producer for Re-Max. He was also a top advocate for God's path to Heaven. Tim actually glowed with the love of God and exhibited this in every way.

Tim did not preach. Tim served as an example with compassion, intelligence, wisdom and a legendary wit. Tim always gave credit to God when asked and gave testimony to God with humility. It was clear his life was God-centered.

So, please pray for Tim and his family.

This link above is on the Leesburg Today website and is the first in a series of announcements about Tim that are appearing on news websites and in newspapers. Look for the official obituary in the Washington Post, Metro section on Monday or Tuesday.

Many members of the news media are going to run stories and reports. Please look for those stories.

Here is the memorial information that has been released at this time.

MEMORIAL SERVICE FOR TIM PAGE

Wednesday, June 5, 2002
11:00 A.M.
Christian Fellowship Church
2167 Beaumeade Circle Ashburn

Directions: from Route 28, turn and go west at Waxpool Road. Go to 3rd traffic light and make a right onto Loudoun County Parkway. Go 1/4 mile and make first left onto Beaumeade Circle.

This is a large church and centrally located. Tim went to Chantilly Bible Church but the family is wisely having the service at Christian Fellowship to allow for as many people as possible to remember Tim.

Based on the extremely large number of calls and e-mails and other expressions of support for the family, this is a reasonable judgement. I recommend getting to the Church early out of respect and for practical reasons too.

The family is planning for a private internment on Thursday and those details are still being worked on.

WHAT CAN BE DONE FOR THE FAMILY?

In response to inquiries from every loving person who expressed support for the family, the family is asking that in lieu of flowers (no flowers), that a gift be given to THE TIM PAGE CHILDREN MEMORIAL FUND. You can give a gift at the service if a box is set up there. Or you can send a gift to

The Tim Page Memorial Fund c/o
Chantilly Bible Church
2739 West Ox Road
Oakhill, Virginia 20171

Tim Page gave more than he got on this earth. Now he is in Heaven. Tim's sudden depature shows us a clear example of what is really important. Tim did that in cooperation with God and his loving family. Now you can show your gratitude to Tim and to God for allowing us this always timely lesson.

I will be giving a short testimonial to Tim Page on Monday at the Board of Supervisors meeting. I am asking that the flags fly at half-mast and, on behalf of Sterling, really appreciate all the elected officials and our entire Loudoun community showing support for the family. Thank you to each of them again.
