A person that words can't describe
John was such an incredible person, his only fault was making it absolutely impossible to write a tribute for him. How could I possibly put into words how incredible a person he was...and I believe still is! Intelligent, witty, loving, fun, loyal, endlessly caring and so wonderfully devilish.
John was one of those people you always wanted to be around. Every moment you spent with him instantly became a better moment. It really is impossible to describe what made John...John. Of course he was incredibly smart, loving and funny - but it was definitely a case of the whole being greater than the sum of its part. Somehow John had the perfect mix of characteristics that made him the type of person that you wanted to be around and you strived to be more like him.
I can't even begin to describe how much I will miss John, but he lives on in all of us. His amazing kids, his absolutely incredible wife...every person who has ever spent time with John...all have some John in them. In fact, I am pretty sure that when Chief barks at me, he is cursing at me in Sicilian.
John, we are all so lucky to have had a chance to spend time with you and thank you for making us all better people.
