Kim Jones - Sad News

For those who post on the Bears unofficial forum (www.bearsfans.co.uk) there is currently this deeply upsetting piece of news.

"This forum has been closed as a mark of respect to Kim Jones who sadly passed away today 23rd January 2014 after a short illness."

I really hope that this is not true.

Sadly George Dobell has just confirmed this terrible news on Twitter.

RIP Kim! Just seen this, very shocked and saddened. Never met him but always found him good value on here!

A lot. So sad. This is the first time I will mourn someone whom I have never met and would not recognise. Terrible news.

I feel so sad about this. It is also the first time I will mourn someone I have never met, but have shared thousands of words with on both this and the Bears web site over the last decade. Today is a sad day, we have lost a passionate supporter of the game. A person who was knowledgable and came across as a really nice person. Many will be shocked by this really sad bit of news.

Terribly sad news. This board will certainly be a worse place without him, for one.

Yep, very sad, again a man I never met, but his warmth and enthusiasm always came across in his posts, even at his crabbiest. RIP

Crikey, lost for words. Poor, poor Kimster. The man who brought me here. Knew he hadn't posted for a while but bloody hell.

Like others I'd never had the pleasure but been in conflab for years.

RIP mate, be Crabby in heaven. Forever a Readite.

I've only just seen this myself. I was really made up when I finally got round to meet him the best part of 3 and half years ago. All I can say is RIP.

Really sad news for his family and friends. He will be sorely missed here and on other forums. RIP.

I have just read some of the private messages he sent me in the summer of 2010 when my wife was ill. What a top bloke he was.

Perhaps we should find some of our favourite Kim posts and share them here?

I don't know what to say, I'm so shocked. Did anyone have any idea he was ill? Very very sad. RIP Kim.
