To The Family of John: I'm very sorry for your loss of a very caring family man and a great neighbor for over 25 years. I will miss our talks we had on his porch. John, you will be missed. Rest in Peace.

Prayers to the family. I had the pleasure of meeting John and his wife Jane many years ago. I have a few fond memories with John. We sat one day and looked at old old telephone books and I was so intrigued by them. He said "I can't get over how fascinated you are by them". He was a kind caring man!
