Dear John - now a year passed by and the cut still feels fresh in my brain. Many times your are in my mind and I remember the little but intense time we spent together. Take care at the place you went now - big hug - Jeff

squishy... That's a great shot. Plenty of balls in that stance high above and no pads!

I see a head in the bottom right.

John might be thinking to himself, "I can't hear a word he's sayin'."

What a Great Memorial Day tribute for the Ladder Lad!

Bump, squish.

Joe and I were deep into understanding the realities of Stoner's Highway When John traversed by on the base level ride.
"Is that Stoner's"? he asked. Uh, yeah we replied not knowing what to say. He smiled and kept going, giving us the quiet respect to new guys on a great climb.

Thanks John !

Whatever happened to John's son? Did JB have an estate to take care of him should John ever have the accident that he did eventually have?

Bump in memoriam.

AFS

P.S. I know John's son is in good hands with his mother. John's Father is taking care of the rest. Plus they have Paola backing them up and she is one heck of a woman.

It will never replace a father but it's solid for what it is.
