I'm sorry for your loss. John was my mom's cousin. ( Diane Fialkowski- daughter of Mary and Phillip Fialkowski ) We were just looking through updating our family tree, and came across this information. I hope the family is doing ok. My prayers are with you all. I'd love to see photos of the family, if anyone feels like sharing.
