Dear Tharin,

It has been a long time, but I recently came across one of your poems in my memorabelia -- as usual, well done and beautiful. I don't do Facebook, so in trying to look you up via plebian means, I came across John's obituary.

Send a note when you get a chance.

A heart full of wishes and prayers,
Lee & Carol

My grandpa was an honest, hard-working, and caring man. He always told me how proud he was of me, and he always put family first. I'm so happy to have had him as my grandpa, and I know I'm lucky. I love him so much and will miss him dearly.

RIP to my loving grandfather

John was one of the first persons I worked with when I moved to Dallas. And one thing I will always remember, he was the calmest person I ever met, and one of the nicest. He will be missed.
