Oh John I am so so very sorry…. you were my favorite! That smile you gave when you talked about your granddaughter or that ride you so desperately wanted to take to Cali, and the love you had for Allison, whether you were giving me the eye glare when I wanted you to do something you didn’t, always letting me know how strong and independent you were, and you were! you were brave, and strong, friendly and so pleasant it was truly my privilege to know you …… ride on my friend.

To my big brother John,
The person that taught me so many things in my life… You showed me how to iron a shirt properly. How to fix a running toilet and how to fix my car. These are just a few of the things I learned from my big brother.
But most of all, you taught me how to be a good person. Along with our dad, you instilled in me the value of working hard, strong friendships and how to be a good husband and father.
The time we spent playing golf, talking, watching Red Sox games, and playing Setback will always be in my heart.
I will truly miss you. You left us way to early. Say hi to Mom and Dad and I’ll see you later! Love always, your little brother
