    John was the best friend I have ever had. It is because of him that I am a teacher today. He was one of the kindest men I have ever met. He was part of my family for the past 38 years. Thanks John for all the wonderful memories you gave to my family and me.

  • I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family. During this difficult time, God is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit He saves. Psalms 34:18
