  1. Sorry to hear about his passing. Had a lot of good times with him.

  2. Very sorry to hear this. John was a good friend for many years. Have some great memories, especially a birthday party when we were both very young. He is in good hands now, which I am happy about. Praying that the family will feel the warm presence of God’s peace in their hearts. Blessings to you all.
