Hello chaps, I haven't been around in ages, but I wanted to pop in to pay my respects to John. He was such a kind and giving soul and the world is a bit darker without him in it. I've wiped more than a couple of tears from my eyes this morning. Peace and love to his family.

BB - good to see you here. Regret that it’s under such sad circumstances.

Glad you're still with us BB. And yes it's very sad about John.

Don't be a stranger.


Cheers,

RR

I understand. I'm still trying to wrap my emotions around this. On one hand, I am glad of the end of his suffering. On the other hand, I feel the selfishness of not having him available. It's become a bitter sweet cup. One that I almost feel is forced upon my palette, and though I am hesitant to drink from it, I feel obligated to finish it to the bottom.

Good to see you posting BB. As others have said, don't be a stranger.

Damn. I hoped, as we all did, that things would go differently, but am thankful to have had enjoyed John's friendship for as long as I did. He was one of the gentlest, more gracious, and giving people I've ever met anywhere, and the world is colder for his absence. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

I was just about to give Birthday greetings to those celebrating, I’m sure they won’t mind if I postpone that until tomorrow. Rest In Peace Fatman we never gave up on you but at least you will meet many brethren of the pipe.

There is a online guest book.

http://www.legacy.com/guestbooks/adn/john-albert-mayfield-condolences/190835467

The obituary.

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/adn/obituary.aspx?pid=190835467

Because of publishing lead times the obituary was published after the local memorial service. There will be another memorial service later this month near San Diego.

Thanks so much for the links. I left a note on the online guest book. I think everyone here should do the same. We owe John that much...an excellent tribute.

I thought it might be a good thing to post the photo of John that was used on his Memorial site.

A fine lookin’ man.

I do not post as much, seeing as I am halfway across the world still, but I wanted to recognize John and his kindness. Before I moved to Kenya, he made an effort to reach out to me and bless my travels with a gift. May he rest well.

I haven't been on in a long time and it is a shame that I have just heard about this I know I'm a little bit late but I'm sorry for the loss I never really got a chance to get to know him though I have talked to him a couple of times I hope that he is at peace and his family has come to be at peace

What can one say at a moment like this, I've never been good at it.
May you rest in ever lasting peace John and know that people do love you.
You certainly made your imprint on many lives.
