I just learned what happened to Jon. I feel very sad and I still have trouble believing that I will not see him again. I have lots of wonderful memories with him in London when invited me to give a talk at the ICN. He was an exquisite host. I discovered on that occasion a sharp scientist but also a sweet and attaching men. I met him after several times, we mailed each other. I am going to miss him a lot. I will think of him forever
