    Our prayer are for John and for the family. John was a great person and we didn’t see him often we loved him. We remember when he saw Jamie stone he told us it was the worst looking deer he ever saw. Will always remember as caring and love him. Jan hear you did great for him. You were a blessing for him. Thank you,?

    John must have had a rough ending with
    ALS. It is very difficult to lose a sibling. I still live near St. Mary’s, passing your home every so often. I taught one of your nephews in Waterford or East Troy–I can’t recall which. He must have mentioned that you were in Los Angeles.,CA. I will keep John in my prayers, even though he’s with God, for sure. Marlene

    Marlene thank you so much. You have a fantastic memory! I actually live in San Jose, Ca since 1965.
    Yes ALS is horrible disease. I hope research will find better treatments. John lived in East Troy at one time..
    Hugs, Barbara
