Such a loss great person and player.
This is so sad. My sincere condolences to Mandy Marie, his family, all his friends, and loved ones.
Very sad news indeed, RIP John. Deep and sincere condolences to Mandy Marie.
Just seen this. Very sad. He was a great member on here and on the couple of occasions I've had a chat with him on here he's been an absolute gent (including great help and encouragement with my planned U.S. Road trip)
Not to mention a wonderful musician. What a shame.
Sorry for your loss, Mandy Marie, as well as a loss to us all.
I am very sorry to hear of your loss Mandie Marie. John was a great player and very nice guy (in my very limited experience from the TDPRI forum.)
I was thinking recently that I hadn't seen any posts from Big John or Mandy Marie in a while. This is so sad.
The Big John/Mandy Marie love story is so sweet. I've never met either of them, but Mandy Marie, my heart goes out to you.
Big John Rest in Peace
Oh, no! So, sad! Such a wonderful person, and a great addition to TDPRI! I just stopped by on my way to another hospital appointment, and I'm so sad to read this. Condolences to Mandy Marie and to all and any family, friends and forum mates. This is just so very, very sad.
I am so sorry
I appreciate you guys so much.
I'm not really sure what to say or do as I still can't believe it's true. My heart has started accepting it, it's broken, but my brain just cannot take in the fact that he's gone. I keep continuously picking up my phone to send him a text message. My brain seems to think he's away on tour - he's not with me, but he's not *gone*...
We were together 24/7 - we worked together as musicians, recorded together, cooked together, shared our entire lives together....I'm absolutely devastated - and not just out of habit....but because John was FUN. He could be a grouchy, miserable bastard (he IS English after all!), but he could keep you laughing *all* day. There will never be a storyteller quite like John....he could light up a room like no one I've ever met. And, I've played music for a living since age 13 - I've met some characters. John Stannard will always be the biggest character of all. The man was a gift and my only true sadness comes from not having him longer. I'm so thankful I was able to share my life with him.
The last words he said were "I love you" and the last thing he felt was a kiss on the forehead. Cup of tea a few hours before. John was a happy man. I can't put into words how much I miss him.
Like many of us who watched your life together happen, and the joy we felt for you when you finally got together...it was a unique feeling to be included in your lives via an internet bulletin board...but included, we were.
All the best to you, Mandy...yer a good 'un.
As with many others I never got to meet John or Mandy, but there's a phrase that keeps rolling around in my head that seems the truth...
John Stannard. Native Texan...born and raised in England.
RIP Big John. You are loved.
So many of us who never even met John in person are struggling to believe this is real Mandy....he was a man who affected people with his spirit and soul and his character. I'm so very sorry for your loss and I hope each day brings some more healing to your broken heart and some peace to your mind. Take care.
Such sad news. My deepest condolences to Mandy Marie.
My condolences and thank you for sharing this information.
nice one BG..couldn't put it any better .....hang in there sweet girl ...life has to go on..
I am so sad to hear this. A very humble and gracious man.
I am so sorry for your loss, Mandy. My deepest condolences.
My condolences, Mandy Marie.
