  1. Hi
    I met John on a vacation in Barbados in 1979 I kept I touched with him for years but sadly I lost his address, anyway a long story short I have been trying to get hold of him without success. I am from the U K but working in Canada Thunder Bay and I would love to see him again, if this is not possible please give home my kindest regards
