R.I.P. - Ivan Noble

Ivan Noble, a BBC News journalist, has died. He had been suffering from a brain tumour and although he had periods of remission the tumour flared up again and last month he was admitted to a London hospice. He was 37 years old and leaves a wife and two children.

He began to keep an online journal about his disease in August 2002, soon after the original diagnosis. He recorded his thoughts, hopes and fears with great honesty. Just very recently his journal including an entry in which he said 'goodbye' to his many readers. A very brave man - Rest in Peace, Ivan Noble.

My sympathies go to his widow and children, his wider family and to all who knew him personally.
