As you may be aware, John has been fighting a debilitating disease for sometime now and his blog post, "Last Post," tells how he is finally giving in to the fight. He is accepting that the disease has won and now he will soon die. It's pretty moving.
"As you may know, I have a strong belief in the survival of consciousness after death, and I also believe in the concept of natural selection. Nature’s given me the signal — it’s my time, and intuitively and instinctually I’m feeling nature’s correct. I’m not at all scared to explore this fourth (and what I feel is the best) option. In fact, I welcome it, as I’ve been at my wits end the last year trying to deal with this incredibly cruel illness."John is an incredibly talented haunter. I've enjoyed the detail and passion he brought to the craft. He'll be sorely missed. Rest easy, John.
