Post Official Statement from the Bledsaw Family
Dear Guildmembers and Fellow Gamers,

It is with deepest regret that I announce that the Judges Guild's President, Bob Bledsaw has been struggling against terminal cancer, and has but a short time left with us. He is in good spirits, with house in order, and is ready to begin "the Great Adventure," as he calls it.

For those of you who have been awaiting new products; it may take some time. The Guild will go through some changes as it is passed to his three sons. They have only begun to go through his writings and unfinished works, which there is much of. They do not plan to close or reduce the Guild, and will do their best to honor any existing contracts, and persue new product ventures, as time allows.

Calls, cards and flowers are not needed, but prayers for Bob, or a pause for reflection on a time when the Guild brought you some joy, is very much appreciated. Bob loved to see happy faces around the game-table, and doesn't wish to sadden anyone with his passing. His family and friends wish to thank everyone for all the support offered, but nothing can help this situation.

As Bob would say, "Sometimes even the Dungeon Master could use a Saving Throw."

With Regards,

Maed Makistakator

Bob Bledsaw Jr.

That was a very moving statement. Thanks for sharing it. His family must be going through a lot, but it's good to see the spirit with which the letter was written.

This is, though, very sad.

Post New Statement from Beldsaw Family
Hello All,

Of late, Bob has been at the mercy of the telephone calls which have been coming in.

It is really no one's fault, simply the success of the Guild, and the writing he did. It compells fans of his work to make a token show of respect, and they have said many kind things.

Although, it has troubled his sleep, and taxed his strength; he holds no hard feelings.

I asked if perhaps he wanted to make a statement of his own, and if so, what would it be?

To this he simply replied,"Frodo Lives!"

And so he does.

Bob Jr.

I have to admit I thought about calling him. I have been in a very similar situation. I know it taxes you, drains you, but it also helps your soul to know so many people care that much.

Will he accept letters? Printed, I promise. In larger font too.

That way I get the chance to tell him what I would like to, and he gets to control when and how much.

He certainly would love to get letters or cards. Send them to me and I will forward them on.

Thanks!

Hang in there, Mr. Bledsaw. We already lost too many this year.
