“I was proud to have John as a friend and fellow Optometrist. He was always a gentleman and man of wisdom to all of us practicing Optometrist in Southern Illinois.
“So many wonderful memories of John through the years. During my youth I spent as many hours at their house as I did at my own and always remember how welcoming it felt.
