Member bbwriter (Bryce to some of us in chat), passed away at seven last night (4 Feb 2015).
He went into the hospital with bronchitis and a torn intestine. After a surgery to repair his intestine, they discovered an additional bacterial infection in his lungs, then the repair failed, as did his kidneys and liver. They took him off life support on Tuesday so he would be comfortable because doctors felt there was nothing else they could do to help him.
Bryce was a close personal friend of mine, who lived locally part of the year. He is already sorely missed by myself and his other local friends.Ashe Elton Parker

I am so sorry to hear that he didn’t recover. Even when things looked worse, I kept hoping for a better result.
Take care of yourself.February 6, 2015 at 2:44 am #238147J.A. MarlowParticipant
So sad. He was on chat just this past weekend and he was always a pleasure to talk with.
For those who have read the Forward Motion anthology, Bryce wrote under the penname of “Lane Decker Davis”. He was in “A Princess, a Boatman, and a Lizard” and “Cat Eyes.”
He will be missed.
I think it appropriate to dedicate the 2015 anthology to his memory.
