Rick, Jim, Carolyn, I will miss my friend of almost 6o years but I have all the memories I have so treasured of the BIG FOUR. As our children grew up we grew closer together and the care they took of my children and me when times got tough will be only one of many cherished memories. Ruthie

John and Mary Adrianse were two of the most wonderful human beings placed on this earth. I am so thankful that that they were a part of my family- maybe not by birth but definitely through those who we love the most. My Mom was on her deathbed 43 years ago and they took my brother and me into their house to live with them as family while my Dad went to Mayo Clinic to be with Mom. Remarkably, my Mom is still alive, and much of that survival is due to the love provided by The Big Four. My love to all of the Adrianses- we will miss John so very much.

"Phantom faces at the window.
Phantom shadows on the floor.
Empty chairs at empty tables
Where my friends will meet no more."

Oh my. How shocked and saddened we are to learn of John's death. To us, he was a kind, gentle and caring man. He saw to our own father's needs as if he were a baby. The "guys" who sported and laughed together around the table at Wakonda for decades have folded their cards and gone home. What times they had. What camaraderie they shared. Farewell, dear man, knowing you have left an empty place in our hearts. To your family, may time salve you loss. "Betts" off. Gin!

So very sorry to see this. Carolyn, my mom often spoke about your dad and how she enjoyed their bridge games. I am hopeful that all of their bridge buddies are having a great game at this very moment.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.

John and Mary have always been loved by my family. My parents were part of the "Big 4", and I have lots of memories of growing up around John and Mary. John always kept in touch with our family after we moved to Arkansas. He was a loyal friend to are family and we will always have a place in our heart for John. My wife and I went to Phoenix 4 years ago and we were blessed to be able to see John for a short time. He was so proud of his children and grandchildren and I know he will be missed. The Linn`s send their condolences and will keep the family in our prayers.

I will greatly miss John. He and Mary were like another set of parents for Eric, Cyd and I. My sympathy to Rick, Jim and Carolyn and the rest of the family. John left me with so many wonderful memories and will be in my heart forever.
