Please accept my most sincere condolences to his family and friends. Johnny was one of the most generous people I have had the honor of knowing. I wish I had been able to say goodbye but am sure we will meet again. His love of animals was a common interest and I know that Lulu will miss him deeply. His deep dedication to my parents in their last years was a testimony to his hugh heart. I will miss him.

Mr. John was definitely a staple in my family’s life. Not only was he a neighbor, but, he was an extended part of our family. He had such a generous heart, was patient, and kind. We are sad he is gone, but, glad he is now at peace. He is already missed.

Our condolences to you all.
