Sorry for the loss.
Let the fond memories of John provide you with comfort and peace of mind and know that his works in this life are completed also reflect that every time he now comes to mind that his spirit has stopped by to be with you and your family. I was a fellow classmate of John at Helias and was always hoping he would show up at our reunions since I no longer live in Jefferson City.

So sorry to hear of John’s passing.He was a great friend to Marc Brandhorst and then to me when Marc and I were together. I appreciated his sense of humor and his friendship when things got tough.
