Tim’s friends may also enjoy reading some thoughts that his fellow board-gamers have posted in the past few days at http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/892577/tim-seitz-out4blood-r-i-p/page/1 , where they talk about his love of gaming and his intelligence, patience, and leadership in that community.
Well done, Tim. Be thou at peace.
It is great sadness that I send this message. Tom Maiwald (H2) lost his courageous 16-year battle with colon cancer on Thursday, April 12th. He leaves behind his wife, Amy, and their two children, Abby and Nate, so please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. But he also leaves us with a truly inspiring story of courage, determination, hope and faith that he carried with him throughout his journey, and that inspiration will live on in those he touched.
Tom’s wife Amy posted the following on their CaringBridge site [http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/tommaiwald]:
