Dear Elaine and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. When I would visit as Nicky's Nursing Supervisor. It was always a pleasant experience. Family was everything to Elaine and Johnny. Elaine always kept me up with the news of the happy occasions and new grandchildren! Every afternoon there was Johnny at the curb waiting for Nicky's bus, rain or shine. Elaine and Johnny were devoted parents. May you rest in peace and may the Lord hold you in the palm of his hands. My warm regards and deepest sympathy to Elaine, Nicky and your beautiful family.

Momma B and Mr. B I consider my second parents and their family will be my family always. It's been close to 50 years of memories filled with laughter, dancing, celebrating milestones, watching the little ones become adults and even some tears when we lost loved ones. Mr B is dancing over us now, no pain and as always he is smiling that fabulous happy smile. I'll miss you but I know we have a beautiful guardian angel looking over all of us now. Enjoy dancing with Aunt Roe, Willie and Tess and give a hug to Woody. We love you and may the family get through your passing with the strength they have because of you... Licia and Rich xo

In 2004 - 2005 I was a driver for a medical transport company. Many days I would drive Dominic to and from the Lehman school in Lakewood. John would always have Dominic ready in the morning and waiting for him at the curb in the afternoon. John would always talk with me and it was easy to tell what a kind and caring person he was. One of my favorite memories was when John invited me into his house (Renassaise) to see their amazing Christmas Village. Fond memories of Dominic too. I would play the oldies radio station and sing along with my worst voice and Dominic would laugh and laugh.
So sorry for the passing of John but so happy that he had such a large and loving family.
