Lynn, it as been years since I last saw the two of you, but you were frequently in my thoughts and prayers. John will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

I was so sorry to learn of John's passing when I visited my Mom at Union Mills on Friday night. While I did not know either of you for very long, I know that he must have been a very special person to have had such a special, kind and loving wife. I will never forget the kindness you showed me during my Mom's first day.

I hope that your wonderful memories of John will help you through this difficult time.

I am sorry for your loss. I worked with John in the early 1980s at HMRI and I have only good memories of him. I remember him as a gentle man and a good colleague.
