Ironworks Forum Re: Sad News concerning Timber

Damnit. I was never close to him but I am hit harder with this news than I would have expected. On this website, every person becomes a member of a family who share something similar, and he's been around so long. I am sorry I never got to know him more...I am studying paralegal law in college right now and had it in the back of my mind to ask him for advice one day soon.
I am so sorry his family has been hit by this tragedy during the season when family togetherness is high-lighted.

I always wondered if TL was the most educated person on our forum.

I agree. It was so shocking, and so sad. Every member is part of the Family.

This one hit very close to home for me. I had numerous conversations with Timber when I was moderating the Current Events forum we had for a while, both in the forum and also in PM. I also had lots of chats with him about WoW when I was just picking up the game. Even though I hadn't spoken to him for a year or so it was still a huge shock - he was part of my "growing up" on the internet, and on IW.

It's kind of strange reading his posts now, because they still seem "immediate" even though they were posted years ago. As if he was still here with us, arguing his beliefs and his point of view.

I feel much the same way and couldn't find the words for those feelings until I read this.

Agreed. It's strange how much news like this can affect you, despite never meeting someone in person. I'm genuinely saddened by this news. Nothing can make this any easier, but perhaps remembering what he brought to us here. Sad, sad news.

Very sad thing, I always liked reading his posts. As others have said IW is a sort of family.

Though I'm not on here very often, I remember reading a lot of posts by Timber. Very sad to hear.

HOLY HORSE MANURE I sure as Hale will miss the damn lawyer Ain't nobody could scrap like TL. Shite we scrapped on the same side and against each other so much. TL and I joined about the same time in 1998 with in a few weeks of each other. Hale's bells over the last few years I checked in pretty much only to see what TL was posting.

JD steps from the dugout walks slowly to the plate, knocking the dust from his cleets he digs his feet in, lifting the bat off his shoulder JD slowly raises his gaze to look at the familar pitcher mound now empty.... the day will come when once again I'll get to take your pitch downtown.

Rest in peace my friend

Oh s

Eventhough I don't know him in real life, things like this makes me feel sad. My deepest condolences to his family and love ones.
