...even by crazy strangers in Yahoo Chat like me.
All I knew of blast was his text in chat, and his voice and music on the mic. But
that was enough to know that he was a good guy, and it's really sorrowful to hear of his passing.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family, and though this probably
won't offer any comfort at all...
I just wanted to say John and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
And I wish I could do more than post this site in his memory, and respectful dedication.
