I wanted to express my deepest sympathy to you at this time on your loss.
Also I would like to express my thanks and gratitude to be a part of John's health care team. My life has been blessed with getting the opportunity to
know this wonderful man and family. John's dedication to living and his will to
want to be the head of the household is an admiration to his life. God has a
special place for John, who will be receiving all of us at some point in our lives.
Thank you to Mrs. Carleton for your smiles during some of the most difficult
conversations, your love was shining through.
