One of the few guys I have been watching over the past few years. I am very sad and my thoughts go out to his family. Remembering  that he knew the risks and was doing what he loved to do, will not help you very much right now. But over time will help you come to terms with it.

Best wishes to you all Mr Terry Blackburn
