After knowing John for only a short couple years, I can echo what has already been written about him. Beyond just racing, John “Postman” Posthumus touched many lives… it is his impact on so many that need never to be forgotten.
I was fortunate enough to say goodbye to John today – and as tearful as it was, it allowed me the opportunity to remind myself of all the good times we shared. From staying late at the track to exchanging funny e-mails… and generally just having a good time, it is these memories that there are so many of that will always remind me of who John was as a person.
While John’s life was cut way too short, it was how he lived his life that we all need to celebrate. Remember that no-matter what adversity is thrown at us, it is a positive attitude and strong spirit that is going outlive our time on this earth. John left behind memories and experiences that only John could have given… I am glad that I was able to share in some of those experiences and that I can call John a friend.
You will be missed by many… and never forgotten. Thank you for blessing us with getting the chance to know someone as special as you. See you when I get there my friend.
