So sorry I missed this memorial service. I remember how, as a kid, John loved his parents, sister Geri, and other family. He and I had not been in touch for many years, but I remember him as a romantic and lovely boy and young man. I hope that his marriage and fatherhood were happy--everything that a good man wants and deserves, and that he didn't suffer in his final illness. I've made a donation to Dreams for Kids in his memory.
