Jéan Paul Meiring (JP)
Natasha, Ella and Luke,
My sincerely condolensces to all of you on the passing of JP. Always smiling, always looking out for his friends, working hard, making sure everyone else was well taken care of – no matter where we were in the world. We all enjoyed our travel because we got to spend it with great friends from all around the world. It was always a special treat when JP was able to come to the conventions because while we all worked hard, we had a great friendship and one that will last forever. I am not sure if I have ever seen JP without a smile. You saw him, you met him and you instantly were drawn to him because of the big smile and the polite demeanor he had.
I enjoyed every moment with JP and had such a good time at Mark’s Birthday party where we had such a great time. Natasha, I enjoyed our conversation about JP that night and he will always be a hero to me for how hard he fought this disease. Hardest fighter I have ever seen and still kept the smile.
Ella and Luke, remember your Dad’s kindness, his heart and his beautiful smile. That is how we will remember him and also remember his motto “Never Give Up.” Your Dad was a legend. RIP JP and see you on the other side.
