You meet people through business that you might never have met otherwise. I am honored to have known John. He was truly and good soul. The world is a better place because he was here just by being himself.

Dear Kathy and family,

I wouldn't say I really knew John but I have to say in the last few months that he has stopped in to the office he has been a light! I can't image what life has been like for all of you and I have prayed that you are given the strength to endure.

Sincerely,

Barb (of Rhonda's office)
