It was with much sadness that I heard about the passing yesterday of my good online friend Charlie Wildgoose.
Click HERE to read his son Jamie's announcement (scroll down below the photo of Charlie).
I have known Charlie since the days of Yahoo 360. His love and knowledge of the Derbyshire countryside knew no bounds, and I always enjoyed his walking blogs. I had hoped to meet up with him this past summer, but it didn't happen and now never will. His journal of his treatment for his illness, always written in a clear matter-of-fact way, with good humour and no trace of self-pity, should serve as an inspiration to us all.
Walk, on, my friend, you will be missed by all who knew you. One of life's true gentlemen.
