Our world was richer, warmer, friendlier and far more enjoyable with Mr. C (aka Smash or Smasher). He was, in a word, unforgettable. My first face-to-face with John began inauspiciously but, over the next 10 years, I grew to appreciate his unique personality, sense of humor and generosity. He helped shape my life and the lives of many, many others. I owe him a debt which, at his passing, I'm unable to repay but will try by telling and retelling Smasher stories to all who will listen. Warmest and heartfelt thoughts for Mrs. C and family members. Final words...get what you can get and GO!
