Dear Ann and Family - We were sorry to hear of John's passing and have fond memories of our times together during the Glinka years. He was always a gentlemen and was always there if you needed a hand. He was especially nice to Mary Ann's mother and she really enjoyed his company. May his Memory be Eternal. Mary Ann Maryn & George Vislocky

Dear Ann and Family-
What a delight it was to always see John. He was always smiling. I hope the great memories that you have shared through the years will help and comfort you in this sad time. Ann as your Azaberjahn partner I often think of you. I'm sure he is playing the accordion in heaven for all to dance to! One more angel to guide us. Memory Eternal!

I will miss Mr. John and the chats that
we would have on Wednesday mornings while
delivering Meals on Wheels. He was such a sweet person. He loved talking about the weather and things about life and living. I am going to miss him.

I knew Mr. John Artemik when I would
deliver Meals on Wheels on Wednesdays
mornings to him. We would always chat
about the weather or life. I only knew him for a short while, but he was a very sweet man. My company that I work for stopped volunteering for Meals on
Wheesl in September 2011 because of the gas prices. So I told Mr. John I was going to miss our weekly chats. I am going to miss him. May God Bless his family.
