Carol O'Brien

Carol O'Brien has steadfastly written for this site with soul and integrity for some years and yesterday she finally succumbed to that most insidious disease Cancer and is, on this earth anyway, no more. I (the publisher) knew nothing of Carol personally - indeed she carried on writing for me without mentioning it at all - but I do know that there are people out there that are simply irreplaceable and Carol falls well within these bounds. She leaves a husband Nigel, a daughter Eve and a substantial hole in this website. God bless her
