David, just know that God has EVERYTHING in control. We are here for you and your family and maybe you can pick up your god-son and you all can do a ball game or something to lift your spirit. We love you and know that you and your family are always in our prayers.

Respectfully submitted,
Sheldon (godson), Fee and Cliff

I will miss John so much. Aggie Baseball will not be the same without him. I have some very very fond memories of him and he will always be in my thoughts.

I'm sorry to hear about Squeaky. I have fond memories of him. He always fascinated me with his knowledge of sports.
I remember how he could recite the past Rice football scores from way back when off the top of his head. I know you'll miss him. May he rest in peace.

I just received the sad, sad news about John's passing. I'm in shock. I met John the very first day I became a lawyer. He was always kind, thoughtful, and soft-spoken. Love you, John.
