Tim Parris aka Francis Paris was a truly wonderful man.  He was a creative man, charming, brilliant, funny, loyal, determined and fragile.

​He was a true alcoholic.  He died in a rehab his first night in admission.  He always used to tell us he thought he would die from alcohol withdrawal.  He would say it over and over.  And weirdly, he was right.
