So sorry to hear of John's passing. I have such wonderful memories of parties at your house filled with laughter and great food. Both of you truly gave me a "home away from home" during my JMU years. Your warm hearts and great musicianship will always be remembered. May you both be at peace now.

Sandy- We all met very briefly in the 70's; I may have been John's replacement in the Marine Band. I knew of your path- ultimately to JMU, but had no idea you all were faced with such an unfair challenge at such a young age all these years later. Please know Linda and I are holding you in our prayers.

Dear Sandy,

Please know that I and so many others are sending our love and prayers your way. I will always remember with such fondness you and Doc together at the front of the bus on tour with Madisonians...mom and dad to us all!

I lost my mother some years ago to the same dreaded disease. It was indeed the long goodbye. May God give you comfort and peace, knowing that there is no more suffering for Doc.

Those of us who attended Iowa knew John and Sandy. It seems unfair that productive people like John are not allowed the grace to exit life with dignity instead of ebbing away with Alzheimers. God bless him and best wishes to Sandy.

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. I knew John quite well during our years in the Marine Band together, so it's a real blow to hear of his untimely passing. My sincerest condolences to Sandy and the family.
