Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a Happy New Year thus far.
I apologize for the lack of updates, but I have been extremely busy with other projects. As a result, I have not kept up with what has been going on with the UTF family. That said, it has come to my attention that Timmy has shut down his message board.

Timmy, if you are reading this...may God be with and watch over you always.............Vicki

Life is strange...allowing us to step out of our ordinary lives by being touched by someone famous naturally meant more to us than it did for Timmy. But that's not to say he didn't appreciate our dedication...I'm sure he does. He made himself available to his FANS not his friends!
...
I saw Timmy as an Enigma, someone who should have gotten more recognized and famous than he was. I wanted to let Timmy know I thought he was important and I remembered what he did nearly 25 years ago. I have asked many people in the past few weeks if they remembered that saxophone player at Tina Turner's concerts and haven't got the positive responses I expected. Timmy was the best part of that movie Lost Boys. I was just curious what he has been doing these last 20 years. Maybe someday, I will see him play at one of his weekend gigs in New York. I did respect his honesty about steroids and his kindness. Seems he doesn't have the over-inflated ego most celebrities have or need. I knew his song 'I Still Believe' from about 15 years ago, always liked it, never knew who wrote it or sang it, got it on a Demo CD. It is kind of Deja Vu with all this when I learned who he was only about 3 weeks ago.
...
Did Timmy let the group at his message board know that he was shutting it down or was it just one day gone without a word?
...
They just did the most amazing skit with a parody of Timmy from back in the Lost Boys days.
...
Timmy, I hope you got a little royalty for this !!
...
Timmy you are the best!!
...
I said on the message board some weeks ago that I wished I had an autographed picture from Timmy and he TOTALLY CAME THROUGH FOR ME!! It is seriously one of the coolest things I now own.
You rock, Timmy.
...
With posts referring to people as "blood suckers" it is no small wonder Timmy has gone on the Down Low.
...
I will not be attacked by someone who knows nothing of me. I'm pretty sure we all know Timmy is just a regular guy, and we appreciated him for that.
...
Since Timmy took down his board, I have started receiving a decided increase in email related to him or the board or what have you.
...
While I can only speak for myself, I was absolutely thrilled to have had the opportunity to speak to and communicate with such a sweet talented and well known man as Timmy. He gave more of himself to his *FANS* then most would. He made time for virtual strangers...got involved with their lives and turned a fan site into something much more personal and extraordinary. Of course we miss that...but I'm relatively sure that those of us who were lucky enough to have found his site even if only for a short time realized how much time he gave of himself and truly understand why he couldn't keep up with it or continue.
...
Dear UTF Moderator...I sincerely hope those of us who continue connecting on this site will give some serious thought to YOU...your dedication to Timmy and us and voice their appreciation for the time you take on our behalf.
...
However whatever the reason we just have to except that Timmy has his own life and maybe it was time for him to get on with other things.
Many of us have been talking to him via utf for sme years. I have to say that in all the years and DQ will back me on this one that the board members were always repectful to each other and to Timmy. But the months before timmy shut sown the board some choose to be too critical of each other and also had digs at Timmy himself. What-ever our own personal grievences we may of had, it would of been better is they had of been kept them to ourselves or off the board at the very least.. Knowing Timmy as some of us did, and having pure common sence, some of us must of realized that he would shy away from such negativity. It was his board after all and he was the star. He wanted to hear about his music and yes a little about what was going on in our lives. Maybe some of us just got too carried away with our lives and forgot he had his. Anyrode, he just did what he thought was right and dare say did't want the unplesentness on the board. He did't set it up for that. Maybe he just wanted to move on and do other things. We forget maybe that he was rebuilding his life after his own personal matters and needed to change things a little. . But we all I know would want to wish him well.
Timmy if you have time to read this.
...
I'm writing in the hopes that someone can help me get in contact with Timmy via email. His old contact on the official site no longer functions, and I don't know where to turn.
...
Especially Timmy, I hope you are doing well, and I understand.
...
Honestly...I doubt if Timmy is taking the time to review these messages on this site. If he wanted to he could have just bid us all a sweet goodbye and left the other site available for us to communicate with our comments but instead eliminated it. We must get used to the idea that we can no longer communicate with him simply because he gave what he could for as long as he wished to and now it's over.
...
Dont be so sure about Timmy not reading the messages@s. He may of had enough of what was going on the board, but if I know Timmy, he will take a look now and again. Regards Rita.
...
Hey Timmy, If you come here, I want to tell you that we miss you, that we wish the best of the best for you.
...
Hey Timmy, If you come here, I want to say to you that we miss you, and we wish the best of the best for you.
...
Either way, Timmy, I'm wishing you a happy belated birthday, and I hope all is going well with your projects and music.
