I Cried Today

I know what what I am about to say will not have any direct meaning to most of you reading this, but I cried today about a person I never met.  I repaired and upgraded this persons audio preamp and power amplifier.  He was suffering from cancer.  He wanted to do this for his son so that he could enjoy music like every person here does.  He shipped his components to me and they were recently returned.  The other day I found out that he passed a month ago from his illness.  We had many conversations about music and audio over the past several months.  I got to know him as a person.  He loved his family, and he loved music.  Although I never met him, I got to know him.  He was a fine human being, loved life, and was a fine gentleman.  I guess that is what life should be all about.

Anyway, I cried today knowing that John Hoffman is no longer on this earth and now he is with GOD.  I hope there is a fantastic audio system playing music for you to hear John.  Happy Listening and Rest in Peace.  



When we're pummeled every day with a constant stream of Man's inhumanity to Man, what a wonderful reminder that there's much more good in the world than bad, it just doesn't get the press. Thank you for sharing. Your post is a testament to two good men.

@bigkidz thanks for posting your heartwarming experience.

When people pass away, I’m reminded to examine my life - I’m hoping to be ready with no regrets of not trying.  I also try to practice Gratitude - that I’m blessed that they were in my life.
