pip proud 1949-2010

Pip Proud died yesterday from throat cancer aged 62.
His last seven or eight years (following the stroke that left him blind and partially paralysed) were unenviable in so many ways. He was a big part of my life for the last 15 years with a range of frustrations and delights, and I will most definitely miss him very much.

It was me who took that live photo. here's a link to a larger version:

I'm really sorry to hear this.
My grandfather died four months ago for a viagra overdose and I can't still overcome that loss. Take care. Love and blessings.
