Sad News

I heard today that my good friend Bevie James died in his sleep in the early hours of Thursday morning, 6th May. Many of you may know him from Evil Editor and from his numerous blogs. His son has asked me to let his online friends know what has happened.

Bevie was a warm-hearted man, full of caring for others and rather shy. He loved to write and stories just poured out from him.

He made a lot of friends online and inspired much warmth and affection.

He leaves a wife and son and I'm sure that your thoughts like mine will be with them. The funeral is on Saturday.

He is a great loss to us all.

Thank you for letting us know, FHH. I just updated my latest EE Face-Lift query revision post with this news and a link to your post and Bevie's Blogger profile. Have you told EE?

Please offer my deepest sympathy to his family and to all who knew him.

He sounds like he was an amazing kind and thoughtful person.

Very sad news.

Take care

Wow, that's so terrible! If you have contact information could you email it to me?

I hadn't corresponded with him much of late seeing as I haven't had much focus/time for blogging, period. So now I feel mildly guilty on top of being sad.

I've dropped by numerous places to pay my respects but no setting aside of hats will do. This is very sad news and I hope the wealth of warm feeling will find its way back to Bevie's closest and dearest.

Very sad but how perfectly clever to die while peacefully asleep.
