Its been my pleasure to have worked for John and been his friend for nearly 50 years. Will miss our phone calls talking about our old friends from Link. Could not have had a better friend than John.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

John was my very first landlord some 30 plus years ago when I initially experienced the nice fellow that he was. Saw him many times in the old neighborhood throughout the years and he was always the same friendly guy. May he RIP with your mom.
