I worked with John for many years at Logan General Hospital and would like to tell you he is someone I could never forget. John was a very intelligent and a wonderful sense of humor. We didn't get to see much of each other for a number of years, but I still speak of him today. And there is not a time when I get together with my lab friends, that he is not mentioned. He made going to work there a treat. You didn't want to miss a day when John was there as he was so entertaining. Goodbye my friend. Marsha Newman
