Still think it was brilliant that you both got there and represented everybody, can't being to tell you how much that means to me on a personal level that there was some kind of representation there but I imagine it was a big thing for the family as well.

 

Welled up earlier on at my desk when seeing the pictures, it's just horrible man. :(

No problems 2J, in many ways I felt I had a responsibility to go and represent the rest of the forums but on the other hand like I said yesterday, it felt very intrusive. I didn't know anybody there and when they carried him in, a thought went through my head that you should still be alive to introduce us yer daft bugger.... made me smile.

 

I met him only a couple of times, I know a lot of you saw him regularly so knowing how hard I found it, I can't begin to imagine what it feels to you lot who have the photos, the memories....

 

His mate Stewart commented that he went with Jon once to watch us play Southampton and couldn't believe the amount of people from Newcastle who knew him. A measure of the man I guess.

 

Would have been lovely for more of us to have been there yesterday but you all have commitments that you need to stick to. Neil and I were both fortunate enough to be able to duck out of work for a few hours.

The money donated to Jon's fund has been sent to The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone for your generosity. You're all amazing. x

Lord above. I came on to have a laugh about Pardew leaving, decided to have a quick scroll through and found this. Life doesn't half have a habit of kicking you in the nuts sometimes. I only met him once in The Trent, and he seemed a good lad. However little I knew him, he remains part of my life in a way. Very, very sad news.

Only just realised that this has happened after ignoring the thread due to assuming it was a birthday thread until now. Very sad and frankly quite shocking. I best remember Jon, aka.Gejon, as someone with a very quick wit and a good sense of humour which I could relate to and understand. Gone but certainly not forgotten.

Jon passed a year ago today. Still very much in my thoughts and it still makes my heart sink when I see one of his posts on here, thinking about how he's gone too soon.

 

Hope that wherever he is he can feel the love :)

Christ, a year already.

I'm confident I can say I speak for the entire board by asking you to pass on our thoughts to his family and loved ones, Cath.

Is the Lockwood Cup going to be an annual event? Very much enjoyed it last year, and would definitely get down again for it.

 

RIP Jon. Time really does fly.
