Even her response is an insult to Stephen, and every young person ever to die from this SILENT INVASION which kills them.
I just hope that the silly, arrogant, opinionated woman NEVER has to go through what Stephen Gate's, and many, many other parents have had to suffer.

Just to accept that she was wrong, and ADMIT it, may have gone some way to easing the pain of the people who have lost loved ones in this manner.

And yes Rambling rose, Richard Beckinsale is one we ALL remember. That too was a dreadful shock to us all.

I heard this morning, that Stephen's mother was so upset about him having to lie in the church... all alone all night.
The lads in the band then went to the church with their sleeping bags and *kept him company*.
Bless their hearts, that was such a lovely thing to do for his mother.

I can verify SADS. When I was 29, ( a very long time ago), I had a mate called Patrick, he was 32, great local footballer & cricketer, intelligent, fit and healthy. One morning his wife found him dead in bed. It seems he had this underlying heart problem that nobody knew about. The coroner returned a verdict of "natural causes" and said it was like a timebomb waiting to happen.

Jan Moir should apologise unreservedly.

I heard this on the news last night, and was totally disgusted.

She had no right whatsoever to say what she did.
It's all just aimed at selling the paper.

Both her and the DM should be made to publicly apologise to Stephens family. Have they not suffered enough, without having an idiot passing comments on something she obviously knows very little about?.

R.I.P. Stephen

Hi , all she has to do is go into youtube and see how suddenly and unexpectly a fit and healthy young person can died
The person that i refer to is Miklos Feher who died suddenly playing on the football field, he was laughting and talking to the referee and turned round and dropped dead.
The one to look for is R.I.P. MIKLOS FEHER R.I.P.
He was 24 years old.He was an International football player.
I would like to know what being Gay has to do with Stephens death?
