John, you are gone, it is something which I did not want to know. I had been looking for you John since 2006, after you retired and went back to your home state "The Great California", but unfortunately I got very busy and felt myself as I am an ignorant and a selfish friend who did not do much to keep in touch with you. But John, you might have been gone so far where nobody has returned but John you have not gone out of my memories, you would live there forever as my Best Friend and Mentor. I will miss you for rest of my life. I wish somebody from your family can contact me and make share my memories which we both had about our childhood life's similarities and we used to talk a lot.
