I was working with Jane when she started dating John and Jane it's hard to believe it has been that long ago! They hit it off right away. My heart does out to you dear friend. Love. Jeanene

I remember John from the early days of his marriage to my best friend and coworker, Jane Rice. He was such a nice, polite gentleman who loved his family with all his heart. RIP dear John.
