John was the only person I ever met who knew what a Gregorian Chant (song) was! We had a conversation about it once, and he spoke of it with fondness and knowledge. I remember camping at KOA, West Virginia, North Carolina, and Jellystone...all good times. I remember his quiet demeanor and his and Sandy's support when my husband was hospitalized. Too many memories to recall, as I sit here with sadness in my heart. To Sandy, Donna, Sam and Andy I send my love and sympathy. I would like to add this poem by Helen Steiner Rice: When I must leave you, for a little while Please do not grieve and shed wild tears And hug your sorrow to you , through the years. But start out bravely with a gallant smile, And for my sake, and for my name Live on and do all things the same, Feed not your loneliness on empty day, But fill each waking hour , in useful ways Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near And never,never be afraid to die For I am waiting for you in the sky! REST IN PEACE JOHN

So sorry for the loss of your dad. I think he was one year ahead of me at Sallies. To his credit, he sent some great kids thu Glasgow High school.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
