Becky & Lonnie,
I am so very sorry to learn of John's passing. He had such a good heart. We always enjoyed a friendly academic competition in High School, although he almost always won, hence he earned Valdictorian. His friendship and yours is something I have always treasured even though distance has kept us apart over the years.
Please know that my prayers are with you at this difficult time.
