    Hi Folks,

    Thought you'd all like to see this note from the Dublin Historical Society. Our gift in memory of John was obviously welcomed and provided a memorial plaque in honor of him on one of their restoration projects:



    Thanks to all who participated, it's a very fitting tribute to John's memory here!

    Jack, I think rather that John earned a memorial plaque. Our gift just paid for it. Thanks for posting the letter.

    Yes, more what I meant --- excuse my poor choice of words, which I've edited...

    Jack, of course that was your meaning. I'm just a stickler (PITA if you prefer) for precision.

    My sincere condolences. I enjoyed his thoughts on this, and two other forums.

    Just noticed this and wanted to add my respects for a fine photographer and gentleman. My condolences to his family and those that were close to him.

    John Stovall's postings will certainly be missed. Since I live in Waco, only 90 miles away and work through Dublin occasionally, I had thought that I may try to contact him when I was in town; but, like so many old barns and buildings, I passed on through thinking that I was pressed for time this trip and would get to seeking him out the next time. And as we all know, that "next time" has a way of never happening until it is to late. RIP John.

    Hi Folks, one more update. It appears our gift made the local newspaper in Dublin Texas, and thought you would all like to see the article:

    ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. What a class act by our members
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    I have to admit... I've had a bad couple of days reminiscing about my departed mom and this has me, at once, near tears and also feeling quite proud to be associated with the great people here.

    I didn't make it in time to donate in John's name... so let me say a big thanks to all of you who have done such a generous thing in the name of this community at large. It is to the betterment of all of us for sure and I, personally, appreciate it.

    Every time i see that photograph of the hearse, with John leading the way in absentia, I get goosebumps while feeling all warm and heartened at the same time!

    Now, how cool is that.

    That is great news and I am glad that the forum got some recognition for their sense of fellowship and community spirit.

    I know John would be proud of every member here.

    Obviously I was only an Internet aquaintance, but I mourn his passing. John always struck me a a man as big as his country. How fitting is the description of his funeral in the online Photographer.

    Haven't been too active here for awhile, and I was gushed with extreme sadness when I saw this thread... I regret not being able to donate in John's name. Classy move by the GetDPI community. Like many others, he was a "virtual friend." His posts, insights and humor were a treat to read... I learned a lot from him without him knowing, and he unknowingly prodded me to make purchases I wouldn't normally do with his words... he will be sorely missed.

    RIP John.

    I don't know how I've missed this thread for the past two months but I am very sorry to hear John has passed! I always admired his thoughtful opinions.

    Kudos to the Getdpi tribute to John. I know he touched a lot of people with his comments on this forum.

    God bless, John.
