Condolence: Dear Barb, Jack, Gary, Mark, Jeanne & Debbie - My mom sent me a copy of the obituary and I wanted to let you all know how sorry I am for your loss. Growing up next door on Case Street, John was just the little brother who always tagged along with me, Janice, Gary & Mark. I had no idea he had gone on to live such a remarkable life. You must all be very proud of him...obviously he was a person who left the world a better place for having been here. You are all in my thoughts and in my prayers.
