    Ten years ago...

    Today, it was ten years ago I lost John (jonza). I will say it again.... he was a wonderful person - loving, helpful, intelligent, courageous, had a great sense of humor and he was a real catlover. Some of you also really liked him. This is just what a few of you said, and I agree:


    "Jonza was a wonderfully articulate man."

    "The world needs more people like John."

    'His essence shines through in those posts - I am smiling ear to ear."

    "He had a lot of the same views on things I have and he was very articulate and could "argue" his point without being argumentative."

    "John's posts were always such a delight to read. He was a wise and witty man."

    "I loved the story about Fister and training John with headbumps as to which way he was supposed to face when sleeping! LOL"

    "I also remember the Kitty cruise, it was great. John was a wonderful person."

    "And Enjoy Life he did - every day was an adventure to him - one he always invited us to participate in. A Story Teller of the First Order, John could spin a Tail on a moment's notice with little more than a thought to get started with."

    "It just seems like yesterday that we were all posting and taking such joy from John's replies and story telling."


    I will share a few of his threads here:

    I want to thank the ones of you who supported me back then, it meant a lot to me.

    I wish I had "met" him. He seems like a special guy!



    I will miss you forever, my sweet Scooter Bug. You were my best friend. 9/21/1995 - 1/23/2010

    Dearest Randi, I'm so sorry I never had the opportunity to "meet" John. What a wonderful, remarkable person he was, as I have learned since I came to PT. So many precious, delightful memories you have to treasure!

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
