Joan...We are saddened at hearing about the loss of John. Going back well over 55 years, we recall, living as your neighbor on the Burma Road. Both you and John were so kind to us, and we remember you for bringing me home from the Hospital with our second daughter. You and John are very special people, and we shall remember John in that way.

I have many fond memories of Mr Huber from First Assembly of God. He was always a sweet man and I remember his laugh. My condolences to all the family during this time but I also rejoice with you that he is home with the one his heart desired. Many prayers for you all.
