Dad and I will always remember our family times at the Osterville newsstand, Dowses beach, our holidays with all you kids opening a mound of gifts at Christmas and the lighting of the Menorah. You were the best! Handsome, kind, considerate and always loving. I remember you telling me about the love of your life Jenn. All the little messages you would squeeze in in your busy Military career to me. Just a simple I love you that you wrote would carry my heart for months. Your sister Christine called crying today wanting everyone to know she loved you too. She was grateful for the nights you were over visiting her when you worked at the mall. Your Aunt Donna and Uncle Ray talked about the times they visited and how all the cousins you John, Chris, Justin, Marissa, Ashley, and Robert would have such fun together. Remember when your Australian Aunt and Uncle would visit with your cousins Tom and Matthew. John, you grew up to be a wonderful man and Dad and I will miss you but always have you in our hearts. Thank you for being our son. Love you and remember just call out my name as I used to sing to you. Mom
