Frank Zappa said that "it is better to have something to remember than nothing to regret". Sadly today I must write the saddest lines...

I heard yesterday that my colleague Keith Jackson has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Kieth has been unwell and fighting the cancer for sometime but this is devastating news for all of us here at Education Leeds. Kieth was an inspiration... he was totally committed to the Investment in Excellence approach which had changed his life through his passionate belief, his total commitment and he touched so many of us through his example.

I personally want to wish a colleague, a companion and a friend our thoughts and best wishes at this very difficult time for him and his family.
