I am so very sorry to hear of John's passing. My heat goes out to his children.
My sons Russell and Edward and I were very close to John for many years and we loved him dearly. Both of my sons Russell and Edward have passed and I lost touch with John the last few years ,and I am very sorry for that.
I have a so many fond memories of John 'his brother Michael and my sons growing up. All four boys were very close in age and had a close relationship, so many many happy times growing up .
I will treasure these memories forever.
Prayers and love to the family.

Aunt Barbara
