To the Schneider family,

John Lee and I were the very best of childhood friends. We shared many fun years together growing up in Gulf Meadows playing baseball, swimming, having sleep overs, riding our bikes and fishing. He was always so much fun to be with and we never sat still!

Sadly, the years moved us apart but my heart still remembers and hurts that he left us so soon.

I have no doubt that he was the greatest husband and father and send my prayers to all of you at this difficult time!

God Bless,

Alan Cawley and Family

My prayers, thoughts and condolences are being lifted for Suzanne, Marina, Sean and JL’s extended family. I didn’t know JL well but his love for each of you was apparent through your family photos, loving comments that were heard over and over and the big smiles he always had for each of you!
It’s hard to lose a husband and a father so quickly and unexpectedly. Some days will be good and lots of them will be heartbreaking. Either way, Marina said it correctly... He will always be watching over you. Love, Jane
