Letter From Taryn Siimpson Re Jason Walker

Hello All,

Most or all of you may know that I wrote Jason Walker's memoirs for him back in 2006. He and I had a great time collaborating and the end result was an incredible book about his life, values and strength. To jog your memory, Jason is a quadraplegic and the oldest living survivor (early 30's) of Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy.

It is with a very heavy heart that I announce that Jason passed away March 16 at 9:30pm in Thomasville, GA.
His mother, Linda, asked that I let everyone know as I'm sure she has her hands full right now. Here are additional details:

The viewing is Wed. 6 - 8pm.

Funeral Thurs. 2pm at Eastside Baptist Church.

Funeral Home Allen & Allen in Thomasville, Ga. (They have an online register)

Jason once told me that when notified of his passing, don't be sad. 'Cause I finally won't be missing my body.

Writing, Blogging, Trailers, Academic etc.
