Hey friends. I was very shocked and saddened today when Chris texted me and told me that John Stone has passed away. I got to work and saw several other friends messaging me and telling me that he passed. I have known John since the 7th grade. When I passed my drivers test (they just stamped your permit until you got your new license) I went THAT day for the first time alone in my dad's car for a drive. The first person I ever picked up was John. I went to his house and we were both freaking out! haha (as you do when you are 16 and one of your friends gets their license) We were always friends all through high school. My very first band was with John...he played drums. Chris Ennis played guitar. After high school he moved to Philly to pursue a career in media. He got me into standup in Philly and we performed at several clubs together. We got together several times and bar hopped and had great conversations. I got the idea for a cartoon to pitch to Cartoon Network (Adult Swim). We met at the Starbucks in Philly and were there for about 8 hours! (no problem because we actually PURCHASED items!) We hashed out several scripts and episodes. We sent it to Adult Swim and they passed. FOOLS! We were trying to get it started again but life and jobs get in the way. I have kept in touch with him this whole time. We attended Bill Haddon's funeral together. This one hit me hard....regardless of the circumstances, when you hear of someone's passing it really makes you stop and take inventory of your life and your friends and your family. John, you will be missed. Severely. I love ya brother.

We will miss your infectious laughter, Johnny. You were a sweet sweet child, and a sweet sensitive Man, with a unique sense of humor that would have all of us laughing so much! You were very talented, and did much in such a short span of a life time...we are grateful for the years we got to spend with you.
..."death, be not proud"
