Farewell to John
Monday night's party was a great success. Lots of folks came to bid farewell to John, Ces, and Java (CJ, their cat, was unable to attend... cats in crowds just don't do well). The folks from Fairfax Advocates for Better Bicycling turned out to present John with the first ever Friend of FABB Award, a really great photo collage of John in his many roles. You can see their coverage of the event on the FABB blog: http://fabb-bikes.blogspot.com/ .
All in all, it was a good time, though it's hard to see John go. I'm glad people had a chance to say goodbye though, and that he got a chance to get some sense of how many lives he has touched. He's a good man, and will be sorely missed.
(Photo above is John receiving FABB award from Bruce Wright, president of FABB. Photo below is John with Drew and Adam, who worked for John in the beginning.)
If anyone has more photos, please feel free to share. A few of mine are here:
