-an early friend to me. Explainer of the mysteries of this country, how to navigate. Caused me to see that the was the nation's best choice-no matter what. Always had a smile. Always eager to work. Rest in peace, Tessa. Thank you

I interviewed once. She was warm and friendly, engaged and welcoming, She didn't have to be - I was a junior journo for a civil service newspaper and she was a senior minister with loads on her plate. But she made me feel like the centre of her universe.

RIP Tessa Jowell. Politician, wife, mother, grandmother - and wonderful human being. We’ll miss you - and everything you did with such aplomb.

So very sad at the passing of my friend & predecessor who served Dulwich & West Norwood for 23 years. Tessa leaves huge legacy both locally & nationally & bravely used her brain tumour diagnosis to keep making a difference for others until the very end. Much missed x

If wants to honour then she can start by not cutting cancer benefits, not finding cancer sufferers fit-to-work and not removing benefits from terminally ill cancer patients because they aren't dead after 6 months. Talk is cheap Mrs May.

was a wonderful human being who used her life to make the lives others better & brighter. She did make a difference to so many in Britain. We should mourn the passing of such a kind and empathetic person. But we must also take up her legacy and be good to others.

made you feel special -with kindness, love, time & wise advice. Clear about her politics, a rare human who was never defensive or dismissive. She brought out the best in us-& the entirety of London rose to the challenge & showed what we were capable of in 2012

"In the end what gives a life meaning, is not only how it is lived but how it draws to a close" Such courage from a lady who served public life so well. RIP

So sad about . Not a politician in the normal sense — human to the end of her fingertips, no ego, always interested in others, even the most junior reporter at Westminster in the 1990s. Thank-you Tessa.

deserves to have a great legacy, but maybe we should put funding into making available the expensive drugs we have now to patients rather than waiting on research years down the line.

Good point this. It was astonishing to hear Tory MPs joining in with eulogies when they have dismantled her legacy, including Sure Start. Hypocritical bastards.

In politics she was that rare creature- warm and human as well as tough.
