Goodbye John

I went to a memorial service today, for a man I used to work with, John Gehlen. He died in a plane crash last Sunday. We hadn’t been in touch much since I left Amazon, but I still remember him as straightforward and curious, excited about life, genuinely interested in others. Definitely one of the “good guys” at work. We spoke about flying sometimes, since Brad was getting his pilot’s license around the same time John was working on his. John even got his seaplane rating. I wish John was still alive; the world needs more people like him.
