    I am without words. Stunned, shocked, in disbelief. Your family has our condolences as well. I will miss him dearly, personnally.

    I spoke to him once on for an half hour. He was a joy to speak with. I will regret not ever having the chance to meet him in person.

    Dearest Scott

    Thank you for letting us know here at speedguide, and my heart goes out to you and your family. He was well loved here at speedguide, and will be sorely missed...there is no question of that.

    He shared humor, joy, and his special type of sparkling personality with all of us here, and he will not be forgotten. This may seem like a little thing to you...however he just recently shared something with us that he really enjoyed for breakfast...a ginger marmalade...I was so intrigued by the sound..that I made some myself. It will now always be made in his honor from this point forward.

    You are at peace now my friend. You will be so missed.

    My condolences to you & your Family Scott.

    Croc was a good Friend and we exchanged many an Email, mostly containing a bit of laughter, as John did enjoy a good laugh. This comes as a real shocker to me.

    SG will be lessened by his passing.

    Thanks so much for informing us of this tragic turn of events and please pass on our heartfelt sorrow to all concerned.

    We'll miss you Croc, my Friend.
