To John's Family.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I worked with John at the FS and really thought the world of him. He was truly one of the "good guys".

there's not a computer anywhere, that has enough memory, to handle all the good things I could say about John: I will miss him terribly: rest in peace my friend.

I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed working with John and seeing him at the bowling alley, when my husband used to bowl. He always had a smile on his face and was a delight to visit with.
My God bring you comfort during this difficult time.
