re: John Hinckley JohnZ

I just read on the NCRS board that John has been ill for some time now. That would explain why we haven't heard from him lately in the C1/C2 Forum. I understand that he doesn't have access to a pc or phone. His address is listed in the below copied text from the NCRS Tech Board if you would like to send him a card or note. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and we are hoping for a speedy recovery. He has been a big help and asset to this forum over the years and I hope we have him back soon.

John Hinckley[/h]
Our friend, Past Chairman and long time member of the Michigan Chapter is ill and has been in the hospital for over five weeks. He has been a very active member of the forum, a font of Corvette knowledge that he shared with anyone who asked. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and I am sure he was a friend to many of the rest of the NCRS. He cannot be reached by phone or Email, but if anyone wants to send him a get well card, his address is: 68347 Copperwood Dr., Washington, MI 48095.​

John was a VERY heavy smoker and developed severe COPD over last few years. Prayers with Linda and John as he battles his current illness.

Just received word about John. He is out of the hospital after six weeks and now in a rehab facility; great news! He is also back up and running with e-mail.

Update on John

John's MI friends report that he is in hospice now and the outlook is grim. Send prayers please.
