John was my friend and baseball team mate. Thinking back, I remember a dry sense of humor that left me in tears from laughter. John completed his tour of high school but he was ready to move on about 5 months before graduation. I have thought about John often and wished to laugh with him once more.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. I remember John as a friend and baseball team mate. In rememberance of him in high school, I believed he possessed a wonderful, funny, dry sense of humor. He loved the playing the game and was ready, after graduating, to move on.
