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.

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.

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 lookiní 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.
