I've been in and out of this forum for a couple of years and you have certainly been a help to many. I will keep you and yours in my prayers. Hope the days ahead are much brighter.

Same here, John, I will keep you in my prayers. May God grant you grace and peace in His Son. (Isaiah 41:10).

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss and your problems John. I hope that with resolute fortitude you can overcome the effects and get back on your feet in the shortest time.

Wish there was more we could say / do but that is a lovely offer from Bowenp so hopefully you'll stay with us and we can enjoy your presence on these boards for many years to come.

Hope things work out, GW. You're presence will truly be missed.

In addition to photography topics, I know that I have always enjoyed your resourcefulness in planning, developing and building all the neat projects from mobile BBQ's to effective photographic lighting set ups.

I hope you continue to drop by and participate in this forum....you really are an integral part of the Pentax group on Steve's.

John/GW - all my prayers for a big turnaround in your life soon!

Deuteronomy 33:27: The eternal God is your refuge,
And underneath are the everlasting arms

PS - I don't have much equipment to spare, but if you could use a thread-mount Vivitar 135mm f2.8, you are welcome to it. Might be able to dig out a few other odds & ends too... Just let me know.
