Janice and family,
I will cherish the few minutes I spent with you and John before he left the hospital. He was an amazingly talented and funny guy. I miss the phone calls from him; while you were still working with us! Most of all I will miss his friendship. May God be with you and your family and give you comfort and peace.
All my love
