John's service will be held on 20th February and I will close the fund on 19th February. As the money raised will go into my personal Paypal account I will ask Tim Wilkes to audit and verify giving him full access to do so.... before changing my password :lol:

Never had the opportunity to meet GrumpyBodger, but I absolutely value the contributions that everyone makes to the forum - Donated

John was generous with his help to his fellow elaners and had a keen wit. He's missed already.

Hospice orgs do wonderful work worldwide and a donation is a fitting tribute to John's memory. Done.

John has and will be missed. I admire his commitment to help others.

Great guy. Great loss.

I also never met John, but I do feel the team has lost a star player.
