Melanie - thanks so much for the write up. I'm really going to miss John. But I love the peaceful way you let him go. God's peace be with you now.

Mitch817 gosh I hated to see the bad news He was an inspiration to so many of us. He saw it through on his own terms. Fair winds. Thoughts are with Melanie

RTB I sent Mel an email linking the thread here, and at CF. I hope she will see how much respect we all had for John, and how much we all care for her too, in this sad time.

I asked about her plans for Imagine, and if she still needed any kind of help? I know some members here have sent what they could. She is a tough one, but dealing with John's death and Imagine in Panama, well...it has to be really hard. I'll post more when she replies.

Ralph, if you're in contact with Melanie and she does need help with expenses, I'd be willing to chip in some. Maybe other Sailnetters would too.

RTB I received an email from Melanie this morning -

John peacefully passed and now in peace with the Almighty God. Knowing the Love of the Lord is in his hands, he passed with a smile in his face...knowing he had been loved and have been an inspiration to many. He want to be remembered that he lived a full life. He dont want us to be sad in his passing...he was content and cared and loved.

eherlihy I saw that CP had passed, and it was mentioned there that I2F had recently passed. (It seems that a lot of people pass away in February. )

I re-read the tail end of John's blog looking for an announcement. John was one of the good guys.

My heart aches for Mel. I hope that she is OK, and that she asks for help if it is needed.

I believe that Imagine is in Panama. She may need help returning it to the states. I know that if she asks for it, that SailNetters will be crawling out of the woodwork to help her get their home, home...

Very, very sad...

JimMcGee Just saw the sad news on this thread this morning.

My heart goes out to Melanie.

chall03 I was another who was inspired by i2f's posts. Sad news indeed.
But what an example of a life properly lived.
