    I knew John from a distance, in a way. Many evenings, I take walks around the neighborhood, and as often as possible I stop to play with Ellington, who's always up for a game of catch. John was unfailingly welcoming and friendly--quite nice about finding a stranger tossing a tennis ball in his back yard near dark. He invited me to stop by anytime. Though I'm better acquainted with Ellington than I am with Carole, I want her to know that I was saddened to learn of John's passing, and my condolences go out to her and the rest of the family.
