R.I.P. Jams

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.

Oh, dear. I too have known Jams, though have not encountered him as much lately through not being involved in as many memes in common as earlier on. May he rest in peace.

I didn't know Jams, but it's always an awful shock when someone we know online passes away. I've experienced this on a forum I belong to.

I'm so sorry.

Very sad.

He was one of the bloggers I found through Bloglog, which is also, sadly, no more.

I was so sorry to read about Jams. We had the same birthday in common and you made us some virtual Welshcakes in 2009.
