But seriously, my best to the family.

I just got back from the Funeral Home, been there since noon. I'll be heading back at about 5:30p for the service.

Lauren seems to be hanging in there, and I met several members of his family. I also met a chatted with Drive-By, who did the artwork seen earlier in the thread.

Lauren brought a few of his customs, including last year's Botcon 2nd place winner: a scratch-built Masterpiece War Within Megatron, which can be viewed at http://www.tfmaster.com

Quite a few people were there. If you are in the area, drop by if only for a minute. Bill looks peaceful as he should.

Thank you for sharing this information with us, PorQPine. I wish I could've made it out there today to have some additional closure.

At some point I would like to talk to you guys about some ideas I have to turn tfmaster.com into a tribute/memorial website for Bill. I think it would now be inappropriate to redirect tfmaster.com to the upcoming new Transtopia feature here on Seibertron.com as Bill and I had originally discussed. While I still want to fulfill Bill's desire for the future direction of the Transtopia website and community, I think tfmaster.com should become a tribute/memorial site for Bill. I just want to give Lauren and Racheal a way to be able to hop on the Internet at any time anywhere in the world and be able to remember Bill. I think that would be very appropriate.

I paid for tfmaster.com through 2012 back in October 2006. As long as I'm running Seibertron.com, I will maintain tfmaster.com as well so that he can always be remembered by his friends and family.

Thanks, Seibertron. I'm glad that I could help letting everyone know what was going on.

The service was nice, if not brief. All of his family and friends came, there were quite a few interesting people that I wish I got to know better. I'm really going to miss the big lug. :cry:

A gallery sounds fantastic, and so does a memorial. I'm not very comp-savvy, but let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

I'll be helping Lauren out on Sun to seperate Bill's customs(which she wants to keep) from his regular collection(which she wants to sell). I'll be estimating value for his stuff so she can get a general idea what it's all worth.

RIP Bill, despite all of our rough patches, I'm priviledged to have known you.

After reading that, all i can say is that I'm shocked...


I have never met him before but god this is very depressing...
:-(
I feel incredibly sorry for his family but tell them this, No matter where TFmaster is, he will be always there, there to love his family... :cry: :sad:

He will be sorely missed by his friends, family members, son and his fans. We'll be missing you TFmaster. I can already experience the pain your friends and family fell like the pain i felt when my uncle died. Rest in peace Bill... Life is like a candle...a candle with no light to break up the darkness. I hope that you, Bill, will have a happy time in heaven, i wonder what's it like there in heaven, Bill, Tell me...
