Dear Dan and Steve and family, Please accept our sincere condolences on the death of your beloved father, John. I was a St. Francis classmate and close friend of your mom's. You called me the "Christmas letter friend" and recognized me at your mother's calling hours. I was very touched by that. My husband, Bob, was also a friend of your dad's since Nursing School and we loved to come to visit with them when we were all young and our kids were small. We certainly agree that your dad had a wonderful sense of humor with a ready smile and laugh. I am sorry that we lost touch after your mom passed away. We will cherish the memories that we have of the two of them. They were wonderful people and friends.
God bless you and your families.
Love, Bob and Mary (Mundy) Phelps
