  10. Sadden to hear about the passing of John. John was an outgoing and well spoken man. From the first time I met John in person he would go above and beyond to help others before himself. John was and forever will remain in our hearts. Now taking his place in heaven he will be watching over us from the clouds. My condolences goes out to his family and close friends. John will be dearly missed and to my Aunt who was with John for over 12-13 years. To sum John up in one word I would say HERO.

    Rest in Peace My Friend
