    X-Runner Underground received a letter today from John's parents. I thought it was important that I share it with the entire XRU community.

    Dearest XRU family

    Words fall short of expressing how much we appreciate your thoughtfulness and compassion. Thank you for the beautiful floral arrangement and to those of who attended John's viewing. Many of you traveled great distances to celebrate John's life with us. Thank you for the ribbons you made in his honor. We will forever remember this thoughtful expression and acknowledgement of John's contributions to the XRU forum. Please know the outpouring of posts from your members on the XRU website continue to strengthen us through this difficult time in our lives. We love reading those posts. The XRU Family was an important part of John's life. Thank you for making him a part of yours - each and every one of you.

    Love and Peace,
    (signed) Christine and Jack

    I give you this one thought to keep-
    I am with you still - I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush,
    I am the sweet uplifting rush,
    of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do you think of me as gone -
    I am with you still in each new dawn.

    If anybody is still interested in a memorial decal we still have a few left. They are available in the XRU store, and all proceeds are going to a fund set up for John's daughters.

    Thank you so much for posting John's parents' letter. :top:
    It breaks my heart to think that he is gone (but not forgotten).

    Especially when reading the letters from friends and family on the Legacy guest book HERE.

    My prayers and sympathies are still with them...
