Lenore: I was sorry to read about John's death.
I remember all the good times we had when John and Ed (Ted) worked at Eureka with Jimmy Albert and Jim Garvey. My best to you and your girls. I remember when they were just little girls.

Lenore and Family-
I'm so very very sorry. I love John he was really a wonderful guy. He was a true patriarch and fun to be around. I am so thankful I was able to see him at my dad's party. Our world lost a wonderful person but now he is in heaven with all of his relatives. May he enjoy his eternal reward.
