Yesterday, I found out that a former OD diarist passed away from pancreatic cancer on Saturday. Maybe some of you remember him, Tim Ard. I don’t remember his OD name, but I believe it was his name spelled backwards. He had an account on Prosebox, but it is no longer open, unless his family does so to let everyone know. I don’t know if they even knew about it, so I thought I would let everyone know. I hope I am not stepping over any boundaries in doing go.

BTW, Tim and I were friends for around 20 years, starting back in OD days. We not only read the other’s ODs, but we were also friends over the phone, and confidants. We would sometimes write stories about one another, and often those were hilarious.

Tim was a great man. He will be sorely missed.

R.I.P Tim.

This makes me very sad. I followed him here on PB, and he seemed like an intelligent and gentle soul. The world needs those, so I’m sorry for all of us that he is gone, and I’m sorry you’ve lost your friend.

I remember seeing him around. I'm so sorry for your loss.
