John Stewart was something rare in this world of worthless celebrity hacks. He was a sincere artist who worked from the heart and the soul. He never stopped working, writing, and performing, and in that, at least, he leaves a record to be admired and copied. I'm afraid that, again, any words of mine would be insufficient to express the sense of loss this leaves me with, so I'll use some words of his, from a song he co-wrote with John Phillips:
If you’re feeling lonely.
If you’re feeling low.
Remember that I loved you
More than you will ever know
Out where them chilly winds don’t blow.
We have lost another great one.
John Jos. Miller
