Lorraine,
It is with a heavy heart while I write this to you. While I only had the pleasure of being in the company of John a handful of times through the car club and at my home, he would make me feel like I had known him for a long time. What a wonderful , talented and loving man. He could walk into a room and it would brighten right up. He was never short on a good story that would surely bring a smile to a crowd. You and John are a class act and make the rest of us want to be better people.
Thank you for the honor and gift of being able to get to know you Lorraine and your wonderful husband John.

John was a very strong personality. He didn't mince words with you. Straightforward and honest. He was quite a man. My aunt Lorraine will miss him terribly. I was with her when she first met John in 1960. While I was only 14 at the time, I could tell immediately how smitten she was with him. I never imagined that they would spend their entire lives together after that! So happy to have known John. And, also, his daughters, Anne and Marta.

You have my deepest condolences. It sounds like Mr. Blackburn was a trusted friend, husband, and father. His dedication to education is also very commendable. My children are now attending the Los Altos school district, and no doubt Mr. Blackburn left his mark on the school district and all of the young minds there.

My hope is that you can find comfort during this time of great distress with family and friends. I also hope that you find comfort in the "God of all comfort" (2 Cor 1:3) and in the wonderful hope that he holds out for those we have lost in death.
