Dear Pam,

I am so sorry for your loss. John and I reconnected some years ago through Christmas cards - and I was always hoping that we would meet sometime - he was a much younger first cousin of mine. My Dad, Joe Kahl, and John's Dad, Bill were brothers. In fact Bill was my godfather. I was glad to see John's picture - he does resemble his Dad.

You are in my thoughts.

Many years ago I ran The Pet Supplies Plus in Lyndhust. John worked part time there in the fish department. John did love his fish. He had me over a couple times to discuss fish as a hobby. He had many cichlids and raised plecostomus and I raised fish also. I’m glad that I had the pleasure of knowing John. My condolences to his family. John will be missed.

John and I became best friends in first grade at Andover school. We remained best friends for life and in John’s passing we will forever remain best friends.
He will be sorely missed as only best friends can.
