    Joyride has passed?

    I know I have not been very active here for quite sometime, but thought many of you knew this great fellow Vanner? We all knew him for his pleasant information regarding our Vans. Joyride was his moniker here but his name was John Stephens! I happened upon this this am on FB? https://www.facebook.com/jillian.a.b...eric&ref=notif it was posted by his grandaughter. We all knew that he was suffering from cancer, but this really sux!
