Jenny & Johnny, My heart goes out to you both. To have lost both parents in just over a year is heartbreaking to say the least. John was a quiet man but when he spoke people listened. We always enjoyed seeing him at cookouts and get-togethers at your house. We will miss him and have missed Carolyn this passed year. He is now back with Carolyn and as you said, it was where he wanted to be, he missed her tremendously! Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
