    • Thank you Bob
      He talked about that trip always! And, of course, in every box of t-shirts mailed home there were always “baubles” for Donna:-)

  7. Jon was like a big brother to the whole Kodak team… he would make you laugh and always had your back. If a Kodak visitor wanted to see the real Boston.. he would go out of his way and bring them to Doyle’s… for a lobster. RIP my good friend and sincere condolences to Donna and family from the old Kodak family
