I am truly saddened to learn of John's passing. He was such a lovely man with a great smile and a big heart. He would always greet me with such warmth and affection, and he made sure I got my hugs and kisses every time I saw him. I feel honoured to have known him for almost 20 years and I will truly miss him.
He was also a jewel to all of us at Miami City Ballet, and it won't be the same not seeing him at the performances. However, the next time our dancers set foot on stage, just know they will be dancing for him, and he will be applauding them from above.
Darla, you were so blessed to have such a wonderful man in your life, and I hope the memories you both shared will bring you comfort and even make you smile. My condolences, thoughts, and prayers continue to be with you and your family.

Every time I saw Mr. Karlton he had a smile on his face. I will always remember him for his great sense of humor. I am glad that he got to meet and spend time with his great grand children. He might have physically left his beautiful family but his legacy and love will always stay with them. May he rest in peace.
