My sweet friend John.. you will be greatly missed. I'm so thankful for the years of friendship you gave me, the listening ear and the veggie pizza. You were an inspiration to me and I'm so grateful to have met you while caring for your sweet Grandmother Carmella and that we were able to continue our friendship over the years. My heart hurts for your family.

Jack and Joanne and family, I am so very sorry for your loss.
