Thank you all so much for your kind words regarding my Father, above is a photo of his Grandson Charlie and Ellie dancing the night away at one of many fantastic parties held at  his home.
And yes he will be missed by us all.

Jonathan Grimes.


  1. Oh Jonathon, I am absolutely shaking. So, so sorry. I have been away since thursday and just back. I always check Gerald's blog and was devastated to hear the news. Gerald had such a special place in my heart, after his love and support to Karen. He became a lovely friend of ours and I remember happy times spent together. Poor Gerald, he never managed to teach me to jive, and how he tried. I will phone you but am too tearful just now. Love to you allxx

  2. Your message made me dip back into Gerald's blog once more and re-look at his life. I'm so glad it wll be there for all time for his friends to enjoy.

  3. Thank you Jonathan.

    I can't say anything remotely adequate; I'll miss Gerald's wit and artistry immensely.

    Sympathy and best wishes to all of you.

  4. Oh I am so very sorry to hear this

  5. What a shock this is. So sorry I can't come to say my last good byes to kind, generous, talented, one in millions... Gerald. We'd got re-acquainted on face-book. We'd planed to come and see him. He's sorely missed and leaves a big hole. My deepest sympathy to Jonathan and all the family. Wild horses wouldn't have kept me away but politics do.

  6. Dear Jonathan
    It was a shock to hear that your father Gerald passed away.I have a lots of good memory with him.I offer you and all the family my deepest condolences on this dark day.
