Dear Riedinger Family: I am truly sorry for your loss. May you draw comfort from knowing that John is indeed precious in God's eyes. (Psalm 72:14)

I was deeply saddened to read of John's passing in the Cincinnati Enquirer. John and I grew up together in Newport and only lived a few houses apart. He was 2 years ahead of me in school but in our neighborhood, that made no difference. If you could play a sport, you played no matter what your age.
We grew apart when we went to different high schools but always maintained contact.

As a matter of fact, my then girl friend and I went out for an evening with John and his beloved Jackie about 2 months before they were married. My date, who was also named Jackie, went on to become my wife and we have had almost 58 years together including 5 children and 13 grandchildren. It must have been the Newport water and girls named Jackie that made for lasting marriages.

My deepest sympathies at this time of your loss. We will pray for you.
