I miss you, cousin. Every July, lots of the family would make the trek back to Copley, back to Druid Drive, and back to the house my brother David now lives in with his family. We caught up with our lives at the family July 4th Picnic. It is hard to attend and not see you in your favorite chair by the pool, listening to rock and arguing with Joe Revesz about the "hippie" music! Your rich, deep voice and hardy laugh are missed by all of us and we hoist one now, in your honor. Right now I would be listening to you on XFM (Sirius) at your new "gig" if only...
See you on the flip side, cuz.

What a shock it was to hear of your passing!!I remember the good times like when a group of us went to see the Rolling Stones at the Rubber Bowl, double dating to see David Crosby at the Civic Center--the road trip to Colorado with Dave Felber and living at Dawes City. Jon ,it was Great to know you!

I still have the fake news broadcasts we did at the studio after hours. Jon was very talented at his craft and one of the nicest guys you'd ever meet. God rest his soul.
