John, I am so sorry I wasnt there. Of course no one made me aware. Im sure the stress took its toll. The last I heard from you was in a text at Christmas! I dont know if you had fallen ill, or if your passing was sudden.I would have been there , had I known. Im happy for you though;for Jesus said give your loved ones to me freely,at there time of death.For their life with me in Heaven is so much better than it is there on earth! May God Bless You & keep you forever in his love & peace. Thank you for being my friend & I will see you again some day xoxo ❤Always:Tip
