Since hearing of John Maxwell's death I've read the many many tributes celebrating his life and work.  I never met him personally.  I would from time to time send him emails re his articles.  I knew he was ill and actually planned on writing Rebecca if she had heard how he was doing as I missed his Sunday Jonkanoo articles....time just never permitted.
