  1. Frank, you were such a great friend to John and took such great care of him. God bless you for it. We were great friends for many years and he went with me to so many travel functions but we lost touch once I moved to Winter Park and his disease was progressing. What you provided here at last has provided me with some closure.

    • Mary, Thank You! I appreciate your positive feedback and that you got some closure. It means a lot to me that others still miss our dear friend. I would like to just ask you a question: How did you find this post? Unfortunately, I cannot see how people find my post and would just like to know how you found it, like with a search engine or what query you used. Thanks again!

  2. Hi, Frank,

    I think we met one time at the Central Boulevard house.

    Yesterday, I saw the film “Blackfish” about the Sea World whales and the accidents. It brought up quite a bit of buried grief as John worked there when I met him. This morning, I had John on my mind, so I typed in his full name and googled it. There your information was. I have John’s photo on my shelf, along with our dear friend Janette Hunt, who died a possible suicide on the weekend I moved to Winter Park in 1988. John and I attended the memorial service in Maitland. He was sick at the time from pneumonia.

    For whatever reasons, at several times in our lives, he closed himself off from me. Early on it was when he saw a therapist in Tampa who thought she could change him. The last time I saw him was at a trade show the last year he worked at the CVB. It really helps to talk to people who knew him. I am so glad he was able to be himself and be among friends during his final years. I still do miss him.

    • Hi Mary,

      If we met I apologize for not remembering. He had so many friends that I’m still finding them today, like you. Last year, I met Ken McCabe who was also a Sea World friend of his. I still keep up with Les Stone and Linda Piantieri, who also worked at Sea World with JR.

      Thank you so much for the detailed explanation. It helps to know that my posts are showing up in search engines and how you found it.

      As for closing you off, I certainly wouldn’t take that personally. Like I said above, he had a LOT of friends and chose to focus on smaller groups in his final days.

      Thanks again!
      Frank

  3. Hi,

    Do you have an email?
    There is something more I would like to say, but I don’t really want to post it here.

    No, I never took that personally. It happened frequently earlier when he was depressed.

    Thanks,
    Mary
