Dear Gary and John's family,
Jeff, my husband Paul and I send you all our deepest sympathy. Over the last several years we saw John when he came to PA, he spent time here in our home visiting, thus meeting my husband. We enjoyed sharing stories and seeing him each time. I feel like we know the girls, he spoke so lovingly of them and was so proud of what they were doing. Blessings to all of you as you mourn John's passing. We will always remember him at his best.
Karen, Paul and Jeff
