As a former member of the Cabot educational community, my connection  
with John goes back a long way, and I am overtaken with sadness.  
John's depth in soul and spirit added incredible value to any room or  
organization that he was involved. How fortunate we were in our ed  
tech community to have John touch our lives and learned from him. His  
contributions have been invaluable and unique and some of the more  
powerful ones I have experienced. Through his influence on us, he has  
touched the lives of many schoolchildren.  He will be so missed.
