John was always so kind and patient with me, and probably everyone he met in here. Such a decent Man. May he rest in peace now.

Summer of 2007:

A fantastic Brokie weekend - in and around San Francisco and San Bruno.

On my first evening there, I spent a long evening with John, at Linda's home. We didn't talk much, but music was our main focus.

The next day we went together to the rodeo, danced at the ball.

In the hotel's bedroom that Linda had rented for us (  :-* ) , John and I also Jimmy I guess shared a bed - don't worry, we all kept our underwear.   ;D

(It was a short night anyway).

I remember John preparing a lot of stuff (stands etc.) in the Castro Theatre.

Between 2007 and 2014, we exchanged a lot of mails and pms, mainly concerning music and piano playing. (Composers, aesthetics etc.)

In 2014 I saw him only briefly again in Madrid - no time for a chat.

What I remember is a very quiet, silent, sometimes withdrawn man who surprised me by everything he WROTE to me. I think he actually had a lot to say and to express, he was a fine musician too in my opinion (although I've never heard him play in RL), he certainly KNEW a lot about music and many other subjects,

and he certainly loved this forum and our movie to pieces - everything he did here (for us) was an enormous labour of love.

I think that basically he was a DEVOTED man.

I'm happy for him that he grew so close to Diana O., I know that this meant the world to him.

It is hard to understand and it is unacceptable that he's already gone.

Terrible.

I so wish he'd still be here, for quite a number of decades at least!

Eternal rest grant unto him, and let perpetual light shine upon him.

So sorry for your loss, Sue.

I am so sorry to hear this, ((((Sue)))). I know you are so very sad, but he is now pain free and happy in God's arms.

May he rest in peace and I am thinking of you and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. ❤️

...As I turned around to answer it, I just knew this was the call. The call I never wanted to get. My friend had lost his battle with cancer. And it didn't seem real, either.

 ...I don't know. And a thirty year friend. You can't just find another one of those.


Just reading this.  I know, I know.

Today it was Alan's funeral. So many good friends and relations came to say
goodbye.
I miss him...but his peace.... is my peace.
