Ester, Debbie, Wendy, Chacea our sympathies at the passing of John. He always had a story and we can not remember him ever having anything negative to say about anyone. Be assured that he is with you still and watching over you.

To Dick, David, Kathy and family our condolences at your loss of your brother and friend. Remember the good time that you had with him, he'd want it that way.

Sorry we can not make it for calling. Starting to get nasty now. Perhaps we can get together over the summer. God bless and keep you all.
