I had the honor of meeting John. He was truly special and I enjoyed our interactions and conversations. Once you met John you can never forget him. He brightened the room and made you smile. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.

What a great loss. I am so saddened to hear about John's passing.

I met and worked with John as a music therapy intern in 2011. John taught me many lessons by simply living, creating, and expressing himself. I have memories that are joyful, serious, sad, and silly - he shared all of these parts of himself, and that was and is a true gift. It is hard to think of just one experience and memory I had with him; so many memories and interactions hold great meaning, feeling, and important for me. I am so grateful for his life and spirit, grateful to have shared time and space and music with him.

What a great loss. I am so saddened to hear about John's passing.

I worked with John when I was a music therapy intern back in 2011. John taught me many lessons by simply living, creating, and expressing himself. I have memories that are joyful, serious, sad, and silly - he shared all of these parts of himself, and that was and is a true gift. It is hard to think of just one experience and memory I have of him, as all of the memories that come flooding back seem to hold special meaning, purpose, and importance. I am so grateful for his life and spirit, grateful to have shared time and space and music with him.

I am so saddened to hear the passing of John. He was such a special person that no words are adequate.

We met in Geneva. I was a music therapy intern and he was a music therapy client. However, he was more than that. He was a wonderful and gentle teacher. I learned so much from him. "I'm coming!" he'd enthusiastically tell me as he walked towards the session room. I can still hear his voice.

The beautiful memories and music he brought each week will always be with me. Sending you all warmth and light.
