I regret to inform the Keenspot community that the individual generally known a Timber Bram will no longer be hanging around.
His legal identity -- Eric Timothy Baars of Surrey, BC, Canada -- went home to be with his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ on Ocotber 23, 2002.
He had been dealing with untreatable cancer for several years.
He wants you to know that he has greatly apppreaciated the many friends and acquaintances he has met and regrets that he was not able to make his farewells in "person".
I want to thank the incredible cartoonists, writers, artists, and fans with whom I have had the pleasure of interacting. In no particular order, I want to acknowledge these people:
Vince Suzukawa - The Class Menagerie
Jamie Robertson - Clan of the Cats
Sir Gregory, Sir Alexander, Lady Tabias, Sir Howard Tayler, Sir Howard Seelye, and the other Knights of the Order of Jubal - PIQE always and thanks
Eric the Ogredude
Askre - sorry to leave you without an editor
LionkingCMSL - loved those RP universe stories
Loxley - your stories are excellent; in spite of our differences, I wish you well
The rest of the gang at TCM's forum
John Robey - NeverNever and The Suburban Jungle
Jeff Darlington - General Protection Fault
This list is by no means complete. I thought it would be best to thank everyone I could remember, rather than not thank anyone at all.
I really have appreciated everyone who commented on my stories and comic strip, as well.
Please contact my executor, Jeanette Gordon, firstname.lastname@example.org
if you require any information.
In the Name Above All Names, Jesus Christ my Saviour and Lord, for the final time (posthumously)...
Tim Bram, in real life Eric Baars.
