I just wanted to let you all know that John passed away earlier today. As many of you know, his health has been declining over the past few months. He elected to start hospice care here at home several weeks ago, and despite that fact has been highly functional up until the past few days. He took a drastic turn for the worse this morning...he knew what was coming. His family was gathered here at our home and he was made very comfortable. He went out with a smile on his face...which leads me to believe he's playing some heavy, rockin' drums somewhere.
He counted many of you as friends and so many of you have been supportive of him through the years, through the ups and downs.
Thank you for that.
