Jessie Gilbert

I have tried to avoid discussing the tragic death of Jessie Gilbert, but with so much coverage it seems wrong to leave it out of my record of chess news. The following links include games:
Jonathan Speelman (August 6, 2006)
Nigel Short (August 3, 2006)

The fullest accounts of the story that I have seen were reported by Brian Haran (icCroydon), Jamie Doward and Dan McLaughlin (The Observer), Adam Fresco (TimesOnline), and Steven Swinford and Gareth Walsh (Sunday TimesOnline).

Update: ChessBase has posted a story, accompanied by some excellent links.
