Belinda and I were on this years Atlanta Chamber trip when we heard of John's passing. That brought to mind all the Chamber trips we had the pleasure of being on with both you and John over the years. It was in fact the St. Thomas trip in 2003 that Belinda asked John "if Rick and I ever get married, would he bless our marriage". Of course John officially married us in 1994. What makes us sad is also that I was going to be asking John to help us renew our vows next year for ourn 20th.
Derinda and family, our thoughts and prayers are with you as we mourn your loss. John was without doubt one of the finest gentlemen we ever have had the pleasure of knowing and calling friend.
