Some of you may remember the name from about 8 months back when I was I trying a locate an Old Buddy who was M.I.A.  Well, through Erin, Dan, Al Levi and Jerry Viola...I found him.  Jon was 
In hospice and I was glad to spend a few hours with him.  I first met Jon at Long Island PHCC around 1999-2000.  He was a Licensed Master Plumber, super sharp on all things heating, and a Radiant savant.  He battled multiple 
Brain cancer events over the last 30 years.  He never gave up, always smiled and was grateful for everyday.  He did everything for his wife and three daughters.  He was a Gentleman of our industry.  I treasure my time and Ice Cold 🧊 Pilsners we shared.  Godspeed Brother....Mad Dog  🐕

    Death is a good thing, a gift from God. It lightens the burden of a spiritual being. I never understood why everyone is joyous when a baby is born and sorrowful when a person dies. I always thought it should be the other way around.

    Knowledge is gained thru "blood, sweat, and tears". It's important to pass what you have learned to others less knowledgeable so that they can go into the future standing on your shoulders. I think that is one of the highest goals, to make the future better than today.

    Kudos to those beings contributing to this site, you're doing exactly that.
