When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves us with the gift of memories in exchange. Hold onto those memories and let them guide you throughout this time of sadness.

With heart felt sympathy. May God Bless you always.

John was a wonderful asset to the Master Gardener's Program. He was very knowledgable and always helpful to me and others. I have moved to Florida, but he has been in my thoughts and prayers ever since he became ill. I will miss his friendliness and his great big smile.
