Remembering John, I think of all the fun times we shared as children while visiting the Rella cousins in New York. In particular, John and I playing at the Great Neck house, searching & collecting Indian head pennies. I will always cherish the memories growing up and reuniting with John, Aunt Cathy and Uncle Jack.

You are loved John and I am happy we connected so recently. Love, Traci
