This is Christina (John's wife) posting.
Yesterday afternoon John died of a massive heart attack. He is going to be cremated and there will not be a memorial service. Everyone knew John as a big guy, with a big smile, and a big heart....he really was that person. The outpouring of love, support, and kind words has been overwhelming. John really loved what he did and really loved all of you guys. People have asked "what can I do?". A donation to the American Heart Association in John's name would be appreciated. Unfortunately Oakleaf and Acorn will not continue to exist as it was John's creation, and no one can ever take his place. Thank you to everyone ( too many to name), especially Farshad, Hugh and Micah
