Have many great memories of John. He and I would chat longer than we probably should have while he tinkered with old TV and radios, talking about the Yankees, out space and going to the movies. I always enjoyed our visits. He was never too busy to not stop and chat with me. You no longer need to talk of out space as you are there in the heavenly realm.
