John, You were a wonderfully sweet man! I met you when I would come and hang out with Mad Dog to talk about music. You guys would tell me the coolest stories. I have always known you to be honest and kind. You are going to be missed. God Speed with much love.

John was a great man who loved being with people. He was a good friend to me and was always willing to take time to listen or help with a project. There were so many great times hanging out in Quincy and a few road trips as well. You will be missed John.
