May the shadow protect us with his great hart.

Post by Groscurth » Thu Jan 30, 2014 8:10 pm

I just received a message that you alle had in your post. Haven't post sinds times but read here when I look for something, tempus fugit.
I am crying and the snow here can not hold my tears.
Sorry, j'ai les larmes dans les yeux. This hurts.

"Hi everyone, this is Adrien Mulholland John's daughter
I have some upsetting news that he sadly passed away yesterday at home
currently from unknown causes although it is believed to be natural.

So I took it upon myself to email everyone on his contact list to let them know
some of you may not have contact with him anymore in which case my apologies
for sending this email to you.

If you have any further questions please email me at [email protected]
or my number here is 604-278-1414.

We will most likely be having a private memorial for him due to lack of
finances and he will probably be cremated.


Once again sorry to everyone I recognize some of your names and he spoke
highly of some of you and appreciated your friendship."

I received the same email.

Very, very sad news. John was a long, long time member of the forum.

He will be missed.

Oh Jason, after all those years this pops up. I am not a native speaker but can someone write something. Condolences from here.

He usually didn't let any of us know when he was ill. I had just gotten an e-mail from him Tuesday letting me know he'd been in hospital for a month due to pneumonia. He told me we'd chat when he got caught up.

I will truly miss chatting with him, but now he's with his wife. And, no doubt, starting to research the TO&E of Heaven!

So long, John.

Jason. You might want to erase that personal phone number of Adrien's that got left in the quote in the opening post.
Thanks. Dave.

Yes indeed it is a sad day. John was a friend and contributor for a long time. I'm only sorry that he and I lost contact over the last couple of years.

Shadow, you will be missed by all who knew you and all who benefited from your insight.

Rest in Peace my friend.

Very sad news indeed. He was very helpful and contributed a lot to Feldgrau in general but also to me in several of my first posts here some nine years ago. A Gentleman...

My condolences to his family.

I made a special request, and as I posted it in AHF, I realized it needed to be posted here as well. Friends, I present John Mulholland, King Shadow!

RIP John
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
