Olivia....you'll always be my "Miss Greco"....deepest sympathy to you and your family. I have the best memories of you always not only as a teacher at Elmwood Park but at our last re-union. I met John only once...at an Illinois State Speech Communication Convention....but he did indeed seem like a fine man. Again, my deepest sympathies.

I am saddened to hear of your loss. John was a good man and was well respected for his years of public service.
May you find peace and comfort knowing that he impacted many lives in a positive way.
My sincere condolences, Sally Cassidy
Olivia, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this sad and difficult time. John was a wonderful man with such a positive attitude at all times! With my deepest sympathy, Mary Hershoff
So very sorry to hear about John Gown. Both myself and my extended family had many wonderful times with John and his family as I was growing up. He always had a warm smile and greeting when ever I cam around to play with his son. Such a very good man. Everyone in the Gow family is in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

John was my Godfather. I had only recently in the past several years reconnected with him. I always looked forward to speaking with him. I had hoped that I would be able to see him again but due to my own health battles it never came to be ... I only hope that he knew how much I loved him. Olivia I hope that soon only the good memories will remain. Rich Gow
