My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. John may be gone but he will certainly not be forgotten.
John was a wonderful man and will be sadly missed by many people. May the family find peace in knowing that John was loved and respected by a lot of people. I will surely miss "my buddy John Bush".
