I didn't know John as well or as long as any of you, but I always could look 
to him for support from that fantastic vault of his at Fantasy. We spoke at 
length after my surgery last year, and I felt like I had known him for many 
years. John is articulate, knowledgeable and a true asset to an industry 
steeped in back biting and corporate raids.

John, here's hoping Concord gave you some sort of parachute. They are idiots 
if they think thay can replace you.
