It was with great sadness that I learned from Facebook earlier this week that Rags Daniels has passed away. Condolences to family and friends and apologies for not posting this sooner.
I first came into contact with Rags when we were both new to the ebook business. I edited Foxy Lady for him and he sent me a beautiful vase of flowers as a thank you. Still have the vase!
I never knew how old Rags was but he was certainly born in a time gone by. A true Gentleman, the like of which doesn't seem to exist any more. Although I never met him personally I could imagine him holding a door open for a woman, standing up when she entered a room. All the things that no longer happen because women want to be treated the same as men.
Rags was a talented man, a wit and raconteur. He had travelled the world then built his own house on the south coast of England. For the brief period I knew him he brightened my life. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
Rest in peace dear Rags.
