Jessica - A Sad Loss

I was saddened to hear the news today of the death of Jessica Wales, only three weeks after receiving the double lung transplant she had been waiting for.

Twenty-year-old Jessica lived in Westgate’s Linksfield Road, and her organ donor awareness campaign attracted considerable national and international attention. Jessica received support from many sources and celebrities, which included the Prime Minister and his wife Sarah Brown, Jonathan Ross and the singer, Natalie Imbruglia.

I’m sure all my readers would wish to join me in extending their sympathies to Jessica’s family for their loss of such a courageous young woman who was a credit to her community.

Fitting words Bertie about a young lady who should be an inspiration to us all.

Rest in Peace now Jessica. You're long fight is now over.

That is sad news indeed, particularly after seeing the news of the transplant.... So close to home too. I simply wish blessing upon the family in this time of difficulty.
