Dear Berger Family,
I was a Rushford Lake friend of John's from long ago. It was great fun to meet up with him and his family last summer. I have many great memories of him and am truly sorry for your loss.

Sincere sympathy to you Pat, in the passing of your husband. Thru the ACHS get -togethers, I wasn't aware of John having health concerns.
Please know you are in my prayers. Audrey Bingel Miner
