I'm not usually in the habit of doing this but Tennessee Jed
was one of the very first people I met while doing the blog thing. He's also one of the most honest and pleasant folk I've found on the internet in the 8 years I've been on it and I'm sure many of you will be familiar with him through his comments on these pages. I know he has a soft spot for us islanders, even if he hasn't clue what we're talking about. He's a good man.
Jed's family is currently having to endure one of those awful trials of pain and terrible uncertainty that nobody ever ought to experience. If you would please, spare a few moments thought, or say a prayer if that's your thing, for him, his family and especially his daughter.
