        Wow..such a loss! He helped me out with something I wanted for a long time. Very generous guy, invited me to stop by at his studio whenever I was around. I will now never have the chance to meet him... Rest in peace JP

          I dreaded clicking on this.

          Despite not knowing a member personally, some people just become fixtures here and unwelcome news like this makes an impact. Each loss diminishes us a little bit, and I hate
          how that feels.

          RIP, James.

                Thanks Ramy, thanks people.

                It comes as a comfort to hear your memories of James and i will share them with his family and friends.

                We were sitting in the Chapel a fine cocktail bar in Berlin over an "English social" number of viper martinis and he told me the advice his nan once gave him. "James do it while you can" and i think he took that advice to heart.

                We did not have that special glint in James' eye or irascible smile in our lives nearly as long as we wished but such was the intensity of everything he did that we will be finding little nuggets and gems of James just when we need them most for much time to come.

                All the same when we lost James it was if we lost a colour from the pallet, the world will always look different now.

                Really thanks for your kind comments and thoughts

                don't you wonder sometimes about sound and vision

                      Terrible and resounding loss dealt to the small community that we have here. Rest in peace, James. My condolences to everyone who feels his loss.

                            Deeply saddened to hear this news... exchanged a few mail with him too and he was a very pleasant person.

                            May he rest in peace, my sincere condolences to his family.

                              I think it would be really nice, if we as a community could think of something to do to honor our fallen members when they pass......

                              In this particular instance, the level of outpouring of reselect for James seems to suggest that everyone with whom he came in contact with had the utmost respect for the manner in which he conducted himself.

                              I think it would be a nice thing if his family in their time of grief would know and understand that he had left a positive impression on a significant number of people he was in contact with.

                              Its just really sad to think about.......
