I have worked with John for several years at Alere. We often joked when he drove through NJ, that we waved to each other as he passed exit 8A on the NJ turnpike. I will really miss him, but that is small compared to the family's grief. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.

PRAYER is always applicable to every situation; happy, sad, etc. Draw more closer to God in this time of pain through prayer, and you will be surprised how He would help you cope during this distressing time of losing a loved one in death; James 4:8.
