I have only known John for about 4 years now, but felt as if I've known him a lifetime. He was a truly nice person, the kind we all need in our lives to remind us of the humanity that we need to share with one another. Melanie and Ben and Marc, you were truly blessed to have John as a father, he loved you all so very much, but as most of us fathers, had difficulty expressing it, always trying to convince you to "do better" so you'd have a better life. I am honoured that John May called me "friend", a true tribute to his kind soul. Rest now John, your last flight has soared to the heavens and your mission is accomplished.
