John Pratt Passing

Our good friend John Pratt passed away and so we have lost another inquisitive and active mind. His work on calendars and tracking the various ways of determining scriptural events has been interesting and edifying.

I last spoke with John in Challis, and exchanged emails with him recently. He seemed so indestructible that I thought he would be with us for yet a long time. I will miss his ever-cheerful presence.

We nearly lost him a few years ago, but he returned to vigor after a serious infection. His recovery then was the result of faith, prayers and blessings. But we don’t get to keep anyone forever in this phase.

He will certainly be missed.
