Bob & I wish to express our condolences and prayers to Mary and her family. When our son, Bobby, moved into his condo, Mary and John made him feel welcomed. They looked after our son's place and would let us know if there were any problems.

May God bless you Mary and your family in this time of need and eternal rest and peace to John.

John was the best father in law anyone could ever ask for. He treated me like I was his daughter. We had so many wonderful memories. He always made me laugh. I loved listening to all the stories he would tell. He was an amazing husband and father and grandfather. Family meant everything to him. I'm so sad he's gone. I'm gonna miss him dearly. I'm so glad that I got to spend 33 years with him. He will forever be in my heart.

My heartfelt condolence go out to the entire Pappas family. Thought this may comfort you. Love you guys!

At the rising sun and at its going down; We remember them.
At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter; We remember them.
At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring; We remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer; We remember them.
At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of the autumn; We remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends; We remember them.
As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us as We remember them.

When we are weary and in need of strength; We remember them.
When we are lost and sick at heart; We remember them.
When we have decisions that are difficult to make; We remember them.
When we have joy we crave to share; We remember them.
When we have achievements that are based on theirs; We remember them.
For as long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us as, We remember them.
