“Jonathan had this great talent – not only his gift and wisdom but also the ability to make people feel he was speaking directly to them as individuals,” his brother Daniel told The Daily Mail.

“I think that was the key, that people felt he spoke to them personally. Even the most cynical and hardened person could read their forecast and be amazed by its accuracy.”
