Carla writes: The Wellinghall Smial is proud to support an effort by Tolkien fans to assist the family of Dr. Daniel Timmons, a well known, very respected professor and Tolkien scholar, who passed away last December. We invite you to honour Dan by leaving your condolences and memories here. Dan had ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. He is survived by his wife and young son who have a very difficult road ahead. You can make donations to assist them at the website above.
Dan was the editor of J.R.R. Tolkien and the True Hero with George Clark, and also produced and directed the documentary film The Legacy of The Lord of the Rings, which has aired in Canada on both Bravo! and Space: The Imagination Station.
