Mary,
I am deeply sadden when Joyce called to give me the news. I missed JOHN very much. Every fall I think about John when its time to aerate the yard. (I miss those years when I was living in the neighborhood.). My thoughts are with you and I'm sure John is right next to our Almighty Father looking down on us.
