Sad Announcement Relating to Jim Bamber from his Partner
14th March 2010
Following on from the sad news about Rhoda on 23rd February, I am writing to bring you more unexpected news. Although Jim Bamber only started contributing to Finepix in early 2009, he had been taking photographs since 1947 as a youngster. He really enjoyed the professionalism and camaraderie present on the site. This refreshed his motivation and enthusiasm for pushing the boundaries in photography. Only the other day, he was discussing upgrading his camera with me, his partner, Barbara, and other plans for our future.
Unfortunately, on Wednesday, 10th March 2010, Jim died most unexpectedly of heart failure - something we never anticipated. We both thought we would share a good few more years together. Thank you to everyone who participates in Finepix for all their positive and constructive comments shared with Jim. He really enjoyed taking part and exchanging banter with everybody. Besides losing a partner, I have lost my best friend. BARBARA
