I remember fondly having John and Rita, my Aunt, visit my family and I in Flatrock, Newfoundland. It was a very lovely evening where we enjoyed a nice bbq, stories and laughs. John even helped me with my clothes line issue; it was too far away from the patio. He was a lovely man and when travelling to Ottawa on business we would get together there as well. John was even kind enough to bring me to my hotel. John isn't suffering anymore and he is definitely smiling down upon us. All my love and empathy to my Aunt Rita, Lisa and all of the family and friends.
