It is with great sadness I report the death of Jonathan Cole a.k.a "Femi". (12 April 1960 - 16th February 2005). Although I heard rumour of this a few weeks ago, I thought it was a silly joke. I attended his memorial gathering today for which I am grateful to the other friends for remembering him so well, and bringing the memory of his warm soul back for me.

I know some of you raw people will know Jonathan if you came to the UK. He was very active in promoting raw diet, held several events and regularly worked a chain of juice bars. A few years ago we collaborated on a number of events where I spoke about the raw food diet. He was a kind and very humble man who was always open to new ideas and had terrific energy in persuing his goal of making the world a better place.

His friends report that he became very ill after consuming aged raw meat, which he had read would help him to have more energy. This was a surprise to me as Jonathan was very much a raw vegan and well read on TC Fry and Shelton when I met him years ago.

R.I.P. kind soul
