John, I vividly remember how excited and happy we were when you were born. Pat and I were Seniors in high school. We couldn’t wait to get home everyday to take care of you and in time you would become our class mascot as we would bring you right back to school for all our activities. Everyone looked forward to seeing you and holding you - our classmates and our teachers. You were a very happy, peaceful baby and have now returned to that peace. Those memories are etched in my heart and will remain there for as long as I live. Be at peace.

John, you are at peace. You will always be remembered as our "baby" brother. Love is inherent in families and that love will, always be there for you.


Your sister, Pat
