Jon will be dearly missed by me and all his other friends in Istanbul. When I talked to Jon the last time I had no doubt he would no longer be amongst us much longer. Still it was a shock to realise he had departed and that we will never again be able to chat, banter, debate and fight over coffee at the breakfast table in the Kucuk Duvarci sokak. A house we shared several times over the too few years Jon was in our lives.
Jon, I hope you are in a better place. You certainly deserve it in the light of all the acts of kindness you have shown towards people of all faiths and colors.
