I heard just before we went away last week that Jams (Shaun), another blogger, had died suddenly.
I've virtually known Jams for years: he was one of my earliest visitors and has stayed faithful, reading and commenting. I've got to know him and his cats well, and had glimpses of the lovingly-named not-wife. Shaun and Shirley have been together for over thirty years.
I pray that Shirley, as she comes to deal with the gaping hole that his death will leave, will find comfort in knowing that he was so well-liked and respected in the blogging world.
