I only recently "met" you John through your work on Dark Shadows, and have come to admire you very much.
You were very dedicated to your career and craft as an actor, and greatly enjoyed exploring your own humanity through the roles you came to play. You also delighted in opening up new vistas for others through your work, finding a unique pleasure in reaching to others through your readings.
Thank you for your inspiration and your legacy. You have touched my life, and for that I am very grateful.
