Jane died by suicide. Her partner Bella had tragically passed away just over a year earlier.

It is with a very heavy heart that I need to let Jane's friends that she sadly took her own life on the 24th of August 2021.

I hope she can be at peace now and happy together and free of the pain of separation.

A brief moment of celebration:

@ElisabethMcQ was smart and brave. She was a lawyer through and through; looking for a way to make things better for everyone.

She wasn’t out for any credit; she took none for her work but she’s not here to stop me so I’m going to say it:

  • if I’ve done any good helping people in the last year? A lot of credit goes to her.

  • She reached out a long time ago with a plan and strategy I have in many ways been following her ideas since.

  • when she was ill? I carried on in my own little way.

The weirdest thing about Twitter is that you never see half of the good it does.

So today I’m sharing some because she bloody well deserves the credit she was too modest for.
