      I just named Texas EquuSearch as a beneficiary of my IRA. Natalee’s case made me aware of the cause of missing persons, and the great work Texas EquuSearch does.

      Great work Tim and crew.i pray you find her.And Merry Chirstmas!!!

      I saw an epitaph on a headstone once. It read, “As you are now, I once was. As I am now you soon will be.” And so it is and so it will be.

      In 50 years, I’m 99% sure I won’t be on this earth. Many of us won’t. However, the name Tim Miller will live for a very, very long time.

      If we do badly on this earth and in this life, we are remembered, for example, Ted Bundy. But, we have to do an enormous about of good, or accomplish something really special to be remembered.

      Tim is just an ordinary man. There is nothing special about Tim’s background. He has no special degree; he has had more than his share of failures in life. What makes Tim so special is his dedication to what he does. He is just an ordinary man who has done extra ordinary things.

      How can anyone measure Tim’s knowledge? It is beyond comprehension the knowledge that this one man has accumulated.

      In the future, kids will read about Tim Miller and marvel at his life, and hopefully want be like Tim.

      I meet an old WWII soldier, and I guess he just felt like talking. We were talking about battles and battle injuries. He told me, “I got shot once, well actually 3 times. I got some fingers blown off by a hand grenade. I’m missing one ear. I lost 2 toes in Germany from frostbite, and I got bayoneted twice.” I ask the old man why and he told me, “Them other boys needed me.”

      Isn’t that Tim Miller? “Those grieving families need me.”

      As always, a very special thank you to Tim Miller. Another very special thank you to the crew and their families who had to give up spending Christmas together with their loved ones.

      Our sincere blessings extended to all of you. May God be with you and your ship. And guide your vessel in the right direction.

    12. brie on December 24th, 2007 10:13 am

      Let’s all give Tim support and join him with optimism. The powers of positive thinking.

      Tim is working in the sea and Jossy is working on land. Maybe this will all come together.

      Merry Christmas Tim and crew. My prayers are with all of you.

      Merry Christmas to Tim and the crew of The Persistance. God’s blessings to you all.

      God be with Tim Miller and all the people on that ship, as well as with all the Texas Equusearch volunteers and donors. This news contrasts with the almost unbearable fluff that we see at this time of year, and reminds us that there are indeed still real, compassionate people out there.

      (Just like many of us posters on SM.)

      It’s nearly Christmas Eve, so here are two stanzas from a carol, the name of which I’ve forgotten. Kate Smith used to belt this out.

      We all know who the good and evil are (at least some of them) in this saga. Here it is:

      Then in despair I bowed my head.
      “There is no peace on earth,” I said.
      “For hate is strong,
      “And mocks the song
      “Of peace on earth, good will to men.”

      Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
      “God is not dead, nor doth He sleep.
      “The wrong shall fail,
      “The right prevail,
      “With peace on Earth, good will to men.”

    17. richard on December 24th, 2007 1:06 pm

      There’s another carol that goes, in one version:

      “Peace on Earth, good will to men.”

      But I prefer what I understand is the original version:

      “Peace on Earth to men of good will.”

      So, to all Monkeys of good will (setting aside the gender issue): best seasonal wishes.

      This Holiday season all of my good thoughts are with you all down there Tim and all the folks at TES
      Bless you all .
      Merry Christmas Jerry from Greentown, Lake Twp in Ohio

      Thinking of you all on board the PERSISTENCE and wishing you a Christmas blessed with success.
      Thank you Tim Miller and everyone who is working so hard to find Natalee and bring her home.

    20. James on December 24th, 2007 9:16 pm

      I’ve prayed that Tim Miller & Co. would find something to the effect of the remains of Natalee. It’s a gut wrencher for me and I donot even know her each time Aruban Officials say they’ve got a lead, something new, closer to the end, etc. only to say oops, sorry, my bad. How does Beth Twitty feel? I watched my Mother collapse when my little sister died from breast cancer. I can only imagine, being a guy, how a Mother must feel. You know the Mom carries her child for 9months and it’s during that time a special bond is developed. GOD bless all who’ve contributed in whatever way.

      It was so good to hear Tim’s optimism concerning the search. I am so thankful for Tim and all of the crew. As the mother of two sons; one Natalee’s age and with a very similar smile, this case has torn at my heart since day one. My son also went on a senior trip in 2005, to London. The day that he was to return I awoke to news of bombs going off in the subway very near where he’d been staying. I immediately started trying to make contact to find out if he was safe, if he’d boarded the plane….but no one could confirm this. That was the most horrible day I’ve ever experienced. My suffering lasted about 12 hours before he arrived in the states and heard what had happened and called me. Hearing his voice, was a feeling I’ll never forget. I’ve thought of that moment often and I always think about Beth and Dave and the absolute torture they’ve been through trying to find Natalee. It’s enough to have a missing child, but the inhumane treatment they’ve received by the powers that be in Aruba is unforgivable. No parent should ever have to endure what they have. I know that those responsible for Natalee’s demise and those that have participated in the continuing coverup will answer on judgement day. Heartfelt thanks to Tim Miller and all those who have sacrificed time away from their families and millions of dollars to give Natalee’s family hope of finally recovering her for proper burial. Also thanks to Jossy Mansur for continuing to offer assistance which I’m sure is a risk for him. It’s nice to know that someone that actually lives on the island is willing to help. God bless all of you.

      Defeating a Roman Army in battle was simply an act of futility.

      In a week, or a month or a year they would be back.

      And they would have learned from the mistakes of their predecessors.

      Tim Miller and EquuSearch are like that.

    24. Ralph on December 25th, 2007 12:54 pm

      Tim’s words give me hope that they may find Natalee, although from all I have read it is unlikely. Still, we all cling to the hope that these awful boys will be brought to justice and Natalee’s parents can give her a funeral and proper burial that she deserves.

      In the meantime, boycott the s**t out of Aruba. Show those bastards not to target our girls. They made a fatal mistake!

    25. resolution on December 25th, 2007 10:52 pm

      I agree, Ralph….110%

    26. molly in houston on December 25th, 2007 11:25 pm

      Richard, the carol is “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”

    27. molly in houston on December 25th, 2007 11:27 pm

      Merry Christmas and Thank You to Tim and crew.

      This comment is posted on the blog of the heroes on the Persistence today (December 26):

      “The sonar search is progressing smoothly and the end is within sight.”

      If Natalee is to be found in the waters off Aruba, pray God that these people find her.

      Thanks for the carol info, Molly in Houston.
