I considered John my best friend. we woult talk late ie 1-3 am about computer and repair projects.
I had printerd the program for my girlfriends father's funeral service and the fonts did not work right, it looked bad!
John offered at 3 am to drive down to Federal Heights and fix it for me!
I was too tired and we fixed it later and I hand delivered the good one.
I was so moved that he would do this!
John had a big heart. He was always willing to help friends!

Rest in peace good friend!
