Last time we met and exchanged words was in the peaceful and serene surroundings of Samuels Library.

It was befitting and characteristic of you and your personality.

Always peaceful, always serene, always positive.

You are a spritual brother that will be missed.

Really glad I had a chance to talk with John at last year's high school class of 1971 reunion. Wish I had run into him more over the years. May he rest in peace.
