thank you Meg! He was so motivating and creative. He inspired so many and I for one can't wait to read each and every one of them.

Thank you! I've read many of his recent posts but this will keep me busy for quite a while. What a wonderfully creative soul he was. Does anyone know if there is an online obituary?

He would smile to have a pinned thread ... He will forever live in our hearts and touch more people with his posts in the days/weeks/ years to come... I am grateful to have 'met' him and to have gotten to know him and have his support.... as are many of us..

Will miss you Mr Invisible xXx

I've been busy, away and only finding out right now that John's gone. First time I've cried for a long time. How tragic, how sad, god bless you John always.

RIP.....(jon....
