To Pat and family, Lynne and I have you in our thoughts and prayers at this time of sadness. I met Johnny in grammar school over seventy years ago and we became fast and best friends. Each day at noon Johnny and I had lunch at his home about one hundred yards from the school, always soup and sandwiches, especially welcomed during winter. In the afternoons, the old field next to the school came alive with the sounds of baseball, Johnny was always the pitcher and we nicknamed him "Johnny Fastball". On occasion, Phil Paine a member of the Boston Braves pitching staff whose family lived next to the field would make an appearance (much to our delight) and spend a few minutes giving us pointers. We continued to play ball on occasion into our mid teen years, Johnny would always be the leader, setting up pickup games in nearby villages. Gathering anyone who wanted to play, we would pile into my Dads old station wagon, off we would go and the thrill of baseball once again entered our blood.

The magical years of youth were replaced by the military, jobs, and life, each of us traveling down different roads, briefly encountering one another from time to time as our roads intersected.

I will miss "Johnny Fastball", and the memories of the time in life when we dreamed of the big leagues, strikeouts and home runs. May he rest in peace.

John Lawrence was many things to many people. His great sense of humor, love of sports, 50's music were things I loved about him growing up. When I was a teenager John was someone I looked up to, he was my neighbor, my boss, my Uncle John and my friend John. My heart, thoughts and prayers goes out to Pat, Kim and the boys. John had a big heart, and a gregarious personality he was someone very special. I was lucky to have an Uncle John as my friend John. I will miss you Uncle John.
