John, it is impossible for me to mention all my fond memories of you here. Above all, you were a teacher, colleague, mentor, and friend to me. Your support and belief in me over the years was truly inspirational, and could only be matched by my own family. But then again, I always thought of you as family. You will be missed greatly, but I will always carry your advice and teachings with me and they will always be reflected in my work and my life. You will continue to live on in the hearts of all who were blessed to know you, and you will never be forgotten. Rest in peace my friend!
