Say Hi to Donna for me, I miss her so very much, along with so many others.

John's little boy meant so very much to him, he tried so hard to be around for him, may that little guy have good memories of his courageous dad. I worry so for the children left behind.

Rest in peace John, you fought the good fight.

According to facebook,
"He passed away peacefully this morning, holding he held his wife and mother's hands and listened to Aaron's Song"

I'm saddened to hear this news, but knew it would be coming, as I know we were all waiting for the news.
He was definitely knowledgeable and a fighter. It hits way too close to home hearing this news- I always had hoped he would find a way around the disease. What he did do is prolong his life much beyond what the doctors told him was even possible & he blazed trails and gave many of us some great information to look into.
Rest in peace, John!

We perfect the art of saying goodbye....but still, I choose to say "hello" to these mighty warriors, so I must also say "goodbye" with respect and love when the time is right, enriched by the time that I have known them.

Hugs to us all!!!

I feel so bad for his family. When I see his Facebook page and see his profile picture, it just makes me feel so sad and it brings me back to how I felt watching my mom fight cancer. My heartbreaks for his family and for us too who now lose another soldier.

It makes we even more determined to beat this sh*t!!

"Did we give up when the German's bombed Pear Harbor?" "Hell No"

Sorry could not help with adding the Animal House quote.

Farewell John! Your bravery and courage were not only an inspiration to those who are burdened with this awful disease, but for the caregivers as well! You fought a valiant fight my friend- true Marine to the end!!! May you now rest in peace and be comforted by the fact that you have inspired those who were fighting in the trenches along side you, and all of those that will unfortunately come after you!

Dear John:

I am sure you are still reading the site. I want to let you know that I was very lucky for getting to know you in this s.h.i.t.t.y. world. And You were really a sort of guidance to me. And I told Mom today to look for you. I even emailed her and sent her the link of your profile so that she sees your picture and recognizes you. She can cook really well!! Please take care of yourself, and don't forget your family and us here! I will keep in touch with you and will PM you to update you how things are here, okay? I do the same with my Mom. I email her all the time! If your account gets removed by time, I will just write both of you through my Mom's email account.
Please take care, and I hope it's really really nice up there!!!!

You were an incredibly strong man, John. You taught me a very important lesson with your passing. I always thought that "Strength" was enough to get you through anything.

You taught me that it is important but not always enough with this terrible disease.

Still, all in all, you had real strength - the kind I only dream about having.

So, thank you for that - and again, thank you for always "listening."

Thanks for everything that you were and all that you did.
