To: The Roberts Family:

I am so, so sorry to hear of John’s passing. I know he will be sorely missed.
I am so very grateful for all the wonderful moments spent with John during our high school years, and all his wonderful wisdom and humorous attributes! To know John, if you were lucky enough, was to love him, as he was always so selective in whom he allowed within his inner circle!

What I will remember most about John, is his free spirit, his love for adventure and being out on the water, his socks dangling 4 inches off the end of his toes, and his unwavering admiration for Benny HIll and music; particularly, the music of Aerosmith! He never seemed to tire of these!

My deepest sympathy to the Roberts family for this greatest loss.

With much love and affection,

Heather Holt
