Shaun Downey (Jams O'Donnell)


Image of and by Shaun Downey, whose photos and wit and wisdom currently live on here. I think that Shaun, who blogged as Jams O'Donnell, was a fine fellow.

I can't believe he's gone. He was indeed a fine man and I miss him already.

Jams had a kind, generous, humourous spirit. His photos and thoughts will be missed.

I often shared his posts on Facebook. Today, I put your page too so that people will know how to reach his blog. Thank you, Andrew.

I am sad. Very sad.

I don't know why Jams is gone. We loved him so...

And in case you don't know, I love you all, friends! De tout coeur..

Yes, very sad.

I didn't know Sean, but it sounds as if he will be sadly missed.

I'm around so rarely now but I am shocked: I find it hard to take in ...... but Jams .....

I will miss him.

May those close to him be loved.

Thank you, Andrew.
I hope Shaun knew how much we will miss him.
I'm deeply saddened.

In the time it takes to draw one breath, we can be gone. I have been thinking of that a lot today. It's an odd existence that we share, whatever we may think about it. Like others here, I send my sincere condolences to Shaun's family. His mind touched a lot more people than he ever met.

Was over at Steve's blog today and there was a comment by Shaun, quite recent. chilling.

Don QuiScottie said...

Indeed James. I have seen comments that must have been made just a very short time before he died. In some ways that reassures me though, that the event was hopefully mercifully swift and that he was finding things of interest to him up to the end.
