I haven't seen John for many years, and now, sadly, I see him here. John was a wonderful neighbor of mine at Sandpiper Bay for many years. A good, good man.

Goodnight and Godspeed John, and thank you for sharing a part of your life with us... And me.

Dear Connie and family,

My heartfelt sympathies to you. While I never had the opportunity to get to know John, through your portrayal of him when you spoke about him, and seeing him with you at some of our court reporting conventions, it was obvious he was a kind-hearted man and brought you much happiness, as I am sure you did him. I hope you can feel the love, support and prayers from your friends and family.

Connie:

Scott and I are so sorry to hear of John's passing. We have great memories of our time together. Remember in Texas when we left to go the "short" distance for supper?!! AND it was raining!!!
We love you and will be holding you up in our prayers.
