It's been nearly two months and I still can not fully comprehend that you're gone. I miss you so much. When I think of you the sadness is sometimes overwhelming.I love you as much now as the first day I laid eyes on you when our mother brought you home from the hospital. I loved you with all my heart,and would give anything to have one more day with you. I'm so sad that I just missed you-I was planning to visit you on the day you left us. I'm so glad we had some time together on my last visit with you in March-you didn't feel well at all but you were so gracious, accommodating and so brave; I'm so glad you thought to take that last photo of the two of us, I cherish it. You were the best brother ever, simply a most wonderful, warm, generous, loving, kind, funny, kindhearted, nurturing, intelligent, humble human being. I will always love you 'little' brother, you were and always will be, my heart.

Your sister,
Gayle

I was truly schocked by the news of John passing away while I was away in Asia. I am sadden that for all the time we have known each other, the fun we had, and the common friends we share that I was not able to make it to his service. I worked with John at several different companies since ~1992 and have spent lots of time both at and outside of work with him. He is absolutely, hands down the best male friend a girl can ever have. Like others have commented, he is loyal, funny, smart, stubborn, argumentative, generious, a great listener 24X7, and above all a fantastic dancer. A confirmed bachelor until Kichi came into his life. We had some great arguments around his relationship issues in the 1990s. I am depressed not to have known that John was ill. As late as recent months, we would chat on MSN and he never expressed any issues with his health. We complained about the challenges of dealing with kids and swapped stories on raising teenagers. I am mad to see him go, he was one of the finest man I know.

Kechi,

My prayers and love are with you, your son and family--immediate and extended. Thank you for sharing your story of the capture of the "confirmed bachelor." You made everyone laugh as we reminisced about our own personal experiences with John. He was very well loved and respected and a great Friend. John is part of some of my most cherished memories in Kuumba, from Thriller to tours. John's spirit will live in all of us forever. May the blessings of the Lord be upon you and give you peace. Please keep in touch as we would love for John's son to know us who loved his Dad.

Much love,

John always made me laugh with his stories,his re-enactments of movie scenes and his way of communicating with "a look". I was lucky to have known him. I hope his family is able to find the peace, love and happiness that John would want them to have.

I have so many treasured memories of John during our time in Kuumba and as "Brothers". He was a dear friend and I will miss him greatly.
