john

here’s a picture of a bunch of us with john at his & sara’s wedding.

he was such a friend. i found this poem that seems very apropos …

Excerpt from the Poem “About John” by Hilaire Belloc

For no one, in our long decline

So dusty, spiteful and divided,

Had quite such pleasant friends as mine,

Or loved them half as much as I did.

The library was most inviting:

The books upon crowded shelves

Were mainly of our private writing:

We kept a school and taught ourselves.

From quiet homes and first beginning,

Out to undiscovered ends,

There’s nothing worth the wear of winning

But the laughter and the love of friends
