We were so sorry to hear of John's death. Dick and I live in FL and just found out. We were friends of John and Ginny for many years when we lived in Pgh. We were members of the same bowling league and my husband was in the Harmony Line Chorus with John. You have our deepest sympathies.

Our sympathies to the family of John Fleming. We were privileged to have been able to care for John. He was a very special person to us all, always so positive and cheerful. It was an honor for us to have known him. He will be missed!

Dear Denise, Charles and family,

My sympathy and prayers go out to you. Your father was a wonderful man and I have very distinct memories about how much your parents meant to my parents.

Two weeks ago, my wife and I were in the cemetary at Fairmount showing our son and daughter-in-law his great grandparent's tombstone. We certainly noted that your parent's plot is adjacent.

To the Family of John Fleming; My sincerest condolences on the passing of this wonderful person. I had the pleasure to sing, drink and laugh with John at numerous North Hills Fun Nights (barbershop). His stong voice and warm heart will be missed. May his soul rest in peace and his memory remains strong in all of us who knew him.
