I have just heard that James Purdum, a member of this forum for some time, died at his home in the States last weekend.
I had the privilege of walking the Camino Frances with Jimmy during September / October 2015 from Orisson to S de C.
He loved his time on the Camino and often talked about another route some day, sadly not to be.
R.I.P. Jimmy.

Thank you Dave, it was in the title. He hadn't been on here since Nov 2019.
Our condolences to his family and friends.

The Camino experience is a slice of Heaven on earth. How nice James experienced at least one. May his family be comforted with wonderful memories.
