Rest in Peace, John. Being in a grip of classes together growing up from Wellwood, Palm, Mt. View, and High School I only remember you as being a quite kid that somehow found himself in little bits of trouble here and there. (You and I had a lot in common that way!!!)

It's hard to believe that your life, like dozens of our classmates, has been cut short. We never really had the chance to catch up since school, and that is something I regret.

Our prayers, thoughts, and condolences to your loving family.
