Tutu was one of the first to speak publicly about Israel's apartheid regime and their treatment of Palestinians, something he was supremely qualified to recognise.

RIP Janice Long, - Celebrated Greatest Hits and BBC Radio DJ dies aged 66

OBIT

Jeanette and I often used to listen to her Radio 2 show. I even won an on-air contest with a CD as the prize, and after a nice little chat with her I "conned" her into sending me the 4CD Eagles box set that had just been released.

Janice Long. RIP

She was one of the better Radio 1 dj's back in the 80's, gone too young.

Well at 89, he had a good innings, more than he ever scored on a cricket pitch :grin:

RIP Ray

My girlfriend over here in Cambodia passed away in the early hours of 14th Dec peacefully in her sleep. She had a very hard life, died far too young at 38, when I had hoped she would be with me for many years, I miss her very much.

RIP Atou

Sad to hear that Antonio. Hope that you carry many happy memories of her.

Loss is a burden and time heals many wounds (but not all).
