I spent much of my youth with John and we reconnected recently. We had dinner at my house and John took pictures of my family and beloved mother shortly before her passing and his. He also was able to replace a picture of me in my youth which was over 35 years old and taken by him. I misplaced the original which was one of my very favorites of that time in my life. John still preserved the negative all these years later and knew exactly which one I was referencing, he made me a copy. The picture of my youth which was replaced and the pictures of my family and beloved mother are so very special to me and even more so because they were taken by the very best photographer ever. It was like the span of time between our youth and adult years never existed. I am so grateful for knowing you, experiencing your passion for life and your art. John I think of you often and am ever so grateful to have been fortunate enough to be your friend. Your example serves as an inspiration to me. See you on the other side one of these days my friend! Much Peace, Many Smiles and Lots and Lots of Love!!!!
