Dear Betty, Joanne & Anthony,
My memories of all of you go back to many years ago. I will always remember John as a kind generous man who never complained of his disability, though he lost a leg in the war. I pray the Lord will give all of you Peace in knowing John is now receiving his reward in Heaven for a life well lived.
