I am 15 and i have known John for all-of 6 years. A small amount to you, but a lifetime to me. There so many words that could describe a man like John, He truly loved, and strived to be like God. Everyone that knows John knows the overwhelming sense of love that he has for everbody that he knows. Dr. Devincenzo did my braces and i got them off a year ago today. I have probbably lost more retainers that anyone in the history of orthodontics, and i dreaded going to see Dr. D. Not because i dislike the office, but because i loved Dr. D and he loved me, and i knew that he would be dissapointed in me, even knowing that no matter what i did, he would still love me. I now wake up every morning and have my retaner in my mouth and do not look forward to taking it out. To this day, i have been putting of going back to his office because i know i will not be able to bear the sight of him not being there. And also because i am hanging on to that one last thing I have of John, I know that at my next appointment i will get a new retainer. The one i have now, Dr.D made himself for me. I cant let that go. I truely cryed for a week over the loss of a mentor, father-like, loving, wonderful, intuitive, caring, happy, and above-all Godly man.
