As the title says, this post is a tribute to a fellow blogger, John Solomon who passed away one year ago on November 1, 2010.
I knew John was sick, and not doing well as he told me through email correspondence, but I never knew exactly what his illness was at the time. I would just tell him to get well, and hang on.
My heart sank when I knew that he had not posted in a while, and with things going on in my own life, I had not been by to read his blog. When I did finally get around to going to his blog, I had read the news through a post on his site that he had passed away on November 1, 2010.
By the time I read it on his blog it was already February, 2011. I feel badly that I did not know at the time, but like other bloggers out there, I do not think he really wanted others to know.
Bloggers are a small and close community, and when it comes to the niche we are in, that community is much smaller and in some cases closer than in many others. After all, we are all helping one another and others to prepare and survive.
I was not sure at times when I started blogging in this niche if I wanted to stick with it, but after a few emails with John, I decided to keep going.
His family is currently leaving his blog In Case of Emergency up for all to read. Please stop by and check it out, and read from his pages. I learned a lot from John, and I think you will too. His Obituary was in the New York Times, John Solomon.
God bless you John and may you rest in eternal peace, my thoughts and prayers are with your family.
