Six months to live

Tuesday, January 7th, 2003 - 7:03 pm PST

During The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith’s recent trip to the doctor, it was revealed that he has only six months left to live. “It’s a fatal condition,” explained Smith’s doctor, “and I’m afraid it’s just a matter of time at this point.” Asked if there was any chance for a last minute cure, the doctor shook his head, whispered “no”, and turned to go. Rev. Smith was shaken by the news, but soon came to terms with it, stating “we all have our time, I suppose. And at 97 years old, Dr. Timmerman has lead a full life.”
