Many of you know I am a huge fan of miniatures.  While one of the all time greats has passed away on March 13 of a massive heart attack.

Dennis Mize was one of the trailblazers of fantasy miniatures, he was still scultping just prior to his death.

He is a link showing some of his stuff:

As we get older we realize not everybody lives forever, Sutherland, Parkinson, Mize!  These pioneers will live on forever in the product they created and the memories of there fans.

YGBFKM!!!  

Dennis and I had been pretty tight about 20-25 years ago, but gradually lost touch.

A couple of weeks ago, out of the blue, a thought came to look him up, which I had on my list to do about three items away.

Eerie to think that my random urge might have been occasioned by his passing, but he would have relished the whole thing, chuckling all the while. I will miss my old bro'; we cruised the streets of Norwood many a mile together BITD.... Tim Kask

thats one of the few things that makes me utterly sad about life, not being able to tie up them few loose ends that takes the urge like that. i cant even begin to imagine how that feels - with it being soooo long like that. but i guess it would be the same as me wanting to catch up with one of my original AD&D group from 25 years ago, only to find they are no longer with us.

Actually, that IS the case for one of them....a really nice chap name Mike Renshaw, who died about 6 years ago - same age as me. very sad.
