Sunday July 5th 2015 am, about 10am. Sunshine Coast BC.
The whole sky was orange from the fire.
I wasn't around while you were on a burning hillside dying.
You were just a couple of km's away when it happened.
It's been very hard since that tree took your life so quickly up there.
As a professional faller you were donating time trying to make it a safer place for everyone else.
We will never ever forget it.
I miss your smile.
I miss all the times you would show up to my shop and we would laugh and talk.
We chatted about saws, wood, logging, and so much more.
I think about you and speak your name often.
You were the best John.
Rest in Piece buddy.
A very special thanks to all that tried to help John that day.
I know there was nothing anyone could do.
