Uncle John was a most kind man, generous of spirit who lived life to the fullest. I will miss his cards, letters and especially the Christmas greetings he so religiously sent out year after year.

A wonderful man who will be missed and so pleased to have known him over the past several years. We shared many laughs together and will always have great memories of the times spent together.

I met this sweet man only a few times, and loved how sweet and friendly he was. I know how truly loved and adored he was by his family. The goodness in his heart showed through his actions and the look of joy on his face. I know there is a special place in Heaven for him!
