Re: Jon Eisberg's passing

It seems unreal and is a sad reminder of our own mortality. I will miss him and his contributions as well as his honesty and politeness. Damn, it really feels unreal and unfair

Re: Jon Eisberg's passing

I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Jon several times back in the CWBB days. He will be missed.

Fair winds and following seas Jon.

(grin).

Re: Jon Eisberg's passing

I never met Jon but have read his comments over many years. Nor have I seen a picture of Jon until today, now I'll remember his "(grin)"!

RIP

You said it for me...

I sure wish he could read these.

He was a benchmark for us.
