This isn’t your typical Dragons & Spaceships post.
We wanted to bring attention to a friend in the fantasy community who recently passed and left behind not only a loving family but some amazing stories.
Here’s just a piece of his personal story written just before his death. Follow the link below to learn more about how you can help the family in this time of need.
“The quality of a father can be seen in the goals, dreams, and aspirations he sets not only for himself, but for his family.” – Reed Markham
Father, husband, friend, and author Brandon Barr is dying.
After multiple bone marrow transplants, his leukemia has returned. There are no remaining treatments available to prolong his life. At some point in the near future, the world will lose a good man. Many will lose a good and caring friend. The fantasy world will lose a brilliant author. His devoted wife Amanda will lose her loving husband. And three young boys will lose their hero, their rock, their father.
We are all helpless to stop this tragic loss of such a young, vibrant, and caring man. God calls us home when He wills, and no matter our faith or belief system, there is no denying that the void left behind when a good man like Brandon passes on is very real…
We can give him some peace of mind by donating to help support his family financially after he’s gone…
For now, please donate. Give anything you can. Every dollar you can part with is a little drop of peace you can give Brandon right now as he faces this greatest of challenges.
Any money you donate will be deposited directly into his family’s account, to be used for the financial support of his wife and children.
Please share this GoFundMe. If you know Brandon, please share stories of your friendship with him. And if you pray, please pray for him and his family as they endure this indescribably difficult time.
God bless all of you.
