Jon is Jon.  There is no one else to compare him against. 

Jon was the porch light bulb and we were the moths drawn to him.  Bright, positive and upbeat, zany in his actions and art, Jon was on.  But I don't think he was performing or in need of attention.  He drew attention because that was him, that was Jon. He was.

For most of his adult life, Jon lived with brain cancer and lived a full life despite that fact.  He had a daughter, continued hair styling and his art with the support of hundreds of friends, his parents, family and girlfriend.  His light burned brighter and, unfortunately, quicker. 

Renee Gurley is his girlfriend and joins us to talk about Jon, living with cancer, support systems, medicine, God and whatever else comes up.  And we'll take your calls.
