@JohnG -

You won't see this, but I miss you, your blog and I will remember the words you have spoken, along with what you loved to play on your Viola, Maureen.

I’m so glad John G started his blog and posted his videos. He made amazing progress.

Also so pleased he joined in Wexford Carol.

I’m really going to to miss him.

RIP JohnG

I took a few moments to go over the videos JohnG posted on his YouTube Channel - they include his Viola, hosting the Traveler Violin and his enthusiasm for Model Trains.  

There were a few I hadn't remembered watching.
