John I miss you! Thanks for the good times.
I learned much about life from you;
You were the first to teach me "pull my finger"
Followed very closely by your father!
You taught me to respect my elders, my parents and my teachers.
You taught me that adversity is just part of life, (Adapt, Improvise and overcome)
You taught me courage during your bypass surgery, your strength amazed and left an indelible impression.
Lastly you taught me to be happy is to live my life by my rules, and the strength of my convictions, just as you lived your life.
You will be missed, but never forgotton.
Be at peace, my father, my brother Marine "Semper Fi"
We will miss u beyond words.
Love. Roe, RJ and Alex
In loving memory Dear Uncle John...from "your favorite niece" aka your only niece as I fondly remember your words since I was a little girl..give my love to Grandpa Louie and Grandma Julie up there in Heaven.
