You did leave the world better than you found it. Your courage and grace in dying inspired so many people. I heard people say that they would copy your idea, exactly. I miss you so much, Papa!

Dear John, we never met directly. However, I know much of you through the character, wisdom and charisma of your son, Olaf. Your legacy lives on each day when Olaf listens, reflects and then gives information or insights which help others move onward, more deeply into the sweet spots of life. Perhaps we shall meet somewhere in eternity; I do not know. For now, I will celebrate your life through the character you helped mould in Olaf Krop.
