My husband Bob and I were neighbors of John Holic for nearly 20 yrs. here on Six Pond Trail. He always had an interesting story to tell and a kind word to brighten our day. He was always very friendly and had a kind word to share about everybody. We will miss him, and we'd like to share a positive hope for a future resurrection in a paradise.

Thank you John for being my friend and sharing your love and kindness with me. Thank you for sharing Navy stories with me. From one vet to another,thank you for your service! As a friend, thank you for not "putting me on report" or "having me thrown into the brig" like you promised. Thank you for not "sending the Shore Patrol to pick me up" as promised. Thank you for sharing your family and time with me,unselfishly,I might add. I still might "put put you on report" for leaving us so soon. We will meet again some day and walk those streets of gold together. Thank you John, for being my friend. I'm going to miss you!
