Dan Timmons' Memorial shirt

Postby Guest » Mon Feb 26, 2007 7:00 pm

<p>After Dan Timmons' untimely passing on December 18, 2005, his family was
left with not only the loss of a friend, husband, and father, but also with a
difficult financial road ahead. As part of the strong and supportive community
bound by a love for the works of JRR Tolkien, <a title="The white Tree fund" href="http://www.whitetreefund.org/">The White Tree
Fund</a> has created a memorial shirt and keepsake box to help in
the support for the young family he left behind.<o:p /></p>

</a></h2><p><em><strong>The Road Continues Ever On </strong></em></p>
<p><strong><em>The Road has wound past many gates

And many pathways unexplored

I’ve passed by many different fates

And pondered mysterious, shadowed doors<o:p /></em></strong></p>
<p><strong><em>Yet my feet have always known the way

No matter what distractions lie

Fate always let me have a say

And I chose to gladly pass them by<o:p /></em></strong></p>
<p><strong><em>The Road has widened with the years

The journey has not been alone

For all the laughter, all the tears

I feel the close approach of Home<o:p /></em></strong></p>
<p><strong><em>Yet it goes ever, ever on

Though my feet shall walk no more

New footsteps born with every dawn

New paths to ever-distant shores <o:p /></em></strong></p>
<p><strong><em>My Road now leads to silver rain

Golden sun, far country green

The Straight Road takes me far from pain

The gentle bliss of the West is seen<o:p /></em></strong></p>
<p><strong><em>I have reached the end at last

Beyond all hope, beyond all fear

And when I see your shining mast

I’ll know the Road has brought you here</em></strong><o:p /></p>

Timmons and other friends whom the Valar now hold in their arms.
