I will miss making his birthday cake this year. A couple years back, John requested a special pie instead of cake, his mother's vinegar pie. He had her own recipe, and he really enjoyed the pie. It was my privilege to be a close part of Aunt Irene and Uncle John's life from August 2006 to May 2013 when I lived nearby. It is sad but not surprising that he followed soon after her passing. Theirs was a true love story, inseparable in life and now in spirit. We cherish the memories.

John was a loving husband to my Aunt Irene, who passed earlier this year. Both will be sorely missed by the family. They both had hearts of GOLD!
So sorry they are now gone from us.
