Hi John Dear, I visited your grave site today. Places some flowers and polished your head-stone. Looks like its been quiet some time since you had a visit. Just know you will never ever be forgotten. I know there are others who are thinking of you today. You are loved by many! I remember you in a song, a scent, a person who across the street who is walking like you. When I see kindness given to a stranger I see you. Thank you John Dear for your love, and humor and for being uniquely you! Thank you for giving all!!
