I am sad to hear of the passing of John. He brought together myself and Jennifer Johnson Badowski. She passed away from cancer several years ago but her years with John spinning lemonade and long hours of festival work were always pleasant memories.
John Palmer taught me many lessons that he never knew.
John Palmer will be missed.
