Mary, Amy and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss of John.  I know how much he loved his family since we talked about it a lot at work.  John was a great partner and had my back many a times. I have great memories of him and am very sad to hear of his passing. I remember him talking about loving to relax with his favorite drink with a cigar and book or newspaper. John will be missed by everyone God Bless you and your family

Dear Mary and Amy and family,
     I was very sorry to hear of the passing of John. My daughter, Nicole, and Amy went to junior and senior  high school together and attended church functions together, where we became friends with the family through carpooling them to various functions. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. May looking back  in memory help comfort you in the days to come.
Sincerely,
Pam Lort
