John was a great guy who I learned much from, he made me laugh many times - I can still remember several instances of his humor that have stayed with me for over 15 years. My condolences to his family, he is in a better place now.

Chris and I, both share your sorrow, and send you our deepest condolences. I met John only recently, and briefly, and found him to me a delightful, thoughtful gentleman. Prayers that the memories of those years you had this son, the joys, sorrows, laughter, tears, stories give you and your family sustenance.
