This is one of John's favorite exerpts from Invictus and he shared it many times with old friends.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Dear Aunt Judy, Janet, Jo-Ann & Lauren,
Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Uncle John was and will forever be one of my favourite Uncles. He was like an older brother to me rather than an Uncle. I will always remember his great sense of humor and beautiful singing voice & guitar playing.
I will miss him very much.
Love Heather (Dee always to Aunt Judy), Keith, Bryan and Kristen. xoxo
