Dear Flo and the entire family,
My Mom Jo, Ron, and I would like to extend our deepest condolences to you all. We are so sorry for the loss of your Beloved John, and Pray that all the wonderful memories you have, bring you Peace and strength. Although we did not know John well, we knew what a wonderful man he was, through all the years of great stories his beautiful wife Flo would share with us about him. My Mom and I also remember having a lot of fun with him at a party in Flo and John’s backyard, complete with Elvis impersonator and all. And among all the other amazing things about his life, John was a MILITARY HERO. Thank you for your service, John. We are all grateful. Flo, we love you to pieces, and are always here for you. To you and your entire family, please accept our deepest condolences, and know that we are Praying for you all.
God Bless you all,
Julie, Jo and Ron
