I've been reading these forums for a lot of years now. Jon was always my favorite. I won't forget him.

As a lurker on this forum and rehab edge, I have always enjoyed Jon's thoughtful provoking and conscientious posts. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I had the pleasure of spending some time with Jon, including twice over dinner with Michelle. I will always be mindful of his insistence that we must understand what type of pain we are treating. He was particularly interested in sorting out the misuse of neurogenic vs. neuropathic. I think about this dilemma every day.

Let's not forget it was Jon who encouraged us here to post pictures of ourselves at our various meetings. He had a remarkable combination of personal and professional skills. A class act.

This is the first time I've heard of someone's passing and was taken aback without having met them. When I first came to SS I always read Jon's writing multiple times; first because I had to. I hadn't seen or heard of writings like his before. Second because it was over my head. You had no choice but to change your thought process when he was posting. For that I am grateful.

I wish his family nothing but the best in these difficult times.

Yesterday, I did a little search for a piece of info on the forum and the first name that popped up was Jon Newman. It made me sad but at the same time grateful that he gave so much to SS. What a cool dude.

Rest in Peace, Jon.

I never had the opportunity to meet Jon but his input here and on other sites I have frequented over the years have helped make me a more insightful and investigative therapist.

Thoughts and prayers of comfort to his family and friends.
