It was difficult to compose this post. Last night, I lost a very close friend, and it still seems surreal.
Like me, many of you have grown to appreciate Tim Maurer of Mukha Spa over his time on Daytime Columbus. He is not only a literal master of beauty, but he is also one of the most beautiful people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
Tim was not just my makeup artist and guide for more than 8 years, but also the best friend anyone could ask for. He would never fail to contact me on my birthday, sometimes even singing Happy Birthday to me on his flute (another talent.) He was hilarious, sarcastic, and really amazing. Everyone wished to be in his company.
He, his husband Sanito, and the entire shop sent me a huge basket of goodies when I was expecting my first child. and with my second, they invited me to a private lunch where they served me incredible food in courses! Tim personified kindness, friendship, and love.
I will treasure our time together, Tim. I’m thinking of your family and all of your friends right now. Without a doubt, your presence in heaven makes everything much more lovely.
