It is with such a heavy heart that today we are confronted with the shock and grief at the passing of a true Patriot to this country and a true friend. Tim Kerlin, known to most at the world of Blog Talk Radio as "Loki" has passed away suddenly. I received word this morning of this (thank you RZ) and direct you to the announcement over at a12iggymom.wordpress.com
I met Loki at his Blog Talk Radio show back in about 2006 or 2007 - I had run into him first as he was contributing to the BTR show "Jihadi Killer Hour" hosted at BTR by Pat Dollard. Loki was an expert on the U.S. Constitution and joined Pat Dollard on a few occasions. Not long after, I became a regular listener to the "Halls of Valhalla" BTR show hosted by Loki.
In 2009, I had the honor of meeting Loki in person at the first big DC rally that coincided with the 9/11 attacks anniversary.
Since then, I have been to hundreds of Loki's shows, I have been a guest on his show and have phoned in probably 100 times.
I can say this with complete certainty, this country has lost one of our truest Patriots. Loki adored the Constitution, honored the Constitution, studied the Constitution and lived the Constitution.
It is a sad day. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tim's wife and his children and his entire family. You lost one helluva husband and father...and I lost a tremendous inspiration and mentor...and we all lost a true American patriot. But thanks to Tim Kerlin....to the viking imp, "Loki"...we all have more rounds in our ammo belt to fight the war due to the tireless effort this man put forth to save our precious country.
You yourself die;
I know one thing which never dies:
The judgment of a dead mans life.
Men the likes of Tim "Loki" Kerlin are hard to replace. Patriots who love their nation, love liberty will be missed when they pass. And so it is with our Loki. We will not see his like again for many, many years.
We send out our condolences to The Kerlin family. How sad it is to lose a loved one so close to Christmas. May the G-d of Israel bring comfort to them in this time of grief. May G-d bless them.
