John loved life. He always was smiling. His smile and laughter is what I think about whenever I remember the times we had. His favorite story of our adventures together was the story of the bear and how I could tell the age of the bear by the size of the tongue. I had him convinced that I was a biologist. I can still see him laughing out peacefully now my friend. And thanks for the smile you always put on my face!
