I will treasure his last build, the country upstack Rotax. I will think of him any time I am riding that little boat, especially when sliding around frogging quietly at night. Rest in His peace my brother. Prayers of comfort and peace to his daughter and grandson.

I am terribly saddened to know that John has passed. I enjoyed his friendship, and will miss him very much. Life here on earth is just never long enough with those we love. I am glad there is a better day waiting for us in heaven ahead. I know that his grandson was the apple of his eye, and I am sure he will be watching over him. RIP Country.

He died at 5:45 this morning. I have been with him the last 10 days, 24/7, sleeping on the couch in his room at the hospice house, making sure his every need was met, that he wasn't being abused, that his dignity was maintained, and that he wasn't in pain. I'm proud to report a successful mission. And I was truly honored to be by his side for these last days & moments.

In his final few days, after his ability to speak had faded, I made sure he heard positive and honestly straightforward information. Statements like: "You changed the world, John, and made it a better place" & "People are going to remember you" & "Everybody loves you" & "Frogs are fixin' to be celebrating your passing" and would get a nod or thumbs-up from him. I also told him the date every day, and where he was, and what was killing him. This info also seemed to be appreciated and often got a thumps up out of him.

One of the last responses I got from him was the answer to this question: Do you have any regrets? And he thought about it a little then shook his head "NO". :thumbup: so as far as I'm concerned, that was his last words. :) Country never did waste any time; he knew it was the one thing they weren't making any more of!

Rest in peace, my friend.
