Not sure what to say?

i miss you dad, you were the best father anyone could have asked for

John it was great seeing you and your son at the horse races. I am sorry I'm just finding this out. We had alot of fun together over the years. I pray for comfort for your family and may you rest in the arms of the lord.
Rest in peace.

To several of us in the cyberlaw community, John was a mentor, co-counsel, worthy adversary, and friend. His influence will be felt for a long time, and he will be missed by many.

John called me a few weeks ago to talk about the next Cyberlaw Summit he had organized. The summit was one of the many ways that John helped mentor younger attorneys in the Internet legal community.

Didn't learn until this evening that he had passed away. You have my deepest condolences. He will be truly missed.

Remembering the good times: Christmas carol serenades, fresh crab pulled right from the water and into the pot, video games with 4 young Willoughbys. God Bless you John. Love, Barb, Mark and the whole gang

John, you will be missed by many. You were taken way too soon but God needed another angel. May your family have peace in knowing that you will be watching over them always.

John will be missed, he had stength and character that was unique and geniune. He lived his life with no regrets. I will always be grateful for his generosity and mentorship. My heart is heavy for his children...they should always know that John loved them deeply.

I remember John from the "The Corner Cafe" in the Paragon building. We owned the Cafe there--he always came in to buy something--always smiling and always enjoyed talking to him. Such a nice guy and welcomed us when we bought the place. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

John was a dear man. The last time I saw him, he looked on the mend and had a lot of hope. This is how I will remember him. My prayers and good wishes to the pride of his life, his boys. Your Pop thought you guys were the tops. Good memories to you all.
