We represent the family of Tim Frymire in a wrongful death and medical malpractice action against a general medical practice in Wayne County, Missouri. Tim died on August 1, 2013 at the age of 20 from complications of a brain tumor.
We were scheduled to go to trial in August 2016 when the case settled. While we were getting ready for trial, Joanne Frymire was kind enough to share a poem her son had written which sadly references the value of life and the possibility of an untimely death. Here it is:
WHAT LITTLE TIME
What is time and what can it do?
It can change a person just like me and you.
It can fly by or go real slow
Or even stop you while on the go
It can change without reason
Just like weather in a season
Time can help get things off the mind
Guide a new path you want to find
Change a person’s perception from the past
Making something new meaningful that will last
Time can make you realize things taken for granite
Like what little time we have left on this planet
For we know not which breath will be our last
Therefore every day we should have a blast
Timothy was a client whom I met in another personal injury case he had shortly before his death. Very sad to lose a client and friend at such a young age and no amount of money will assuage the grief and sadness that we have with his loss. But, I am certainly proud of the Frymire family for standing up for their belief and trying to get medical providers to treat their patients better.
