So sorry to hear of John’s passing. I have such fond memories of family gatherings way back in the 1950s, 60s and 70s with Aunt Martha, John, Walter, Aunt Jennie, and Uncle Walter. John always had the 1950s era good looks. Such a great guy with a wonderful sense of humor. Thoughts and prayer with all of you at this difficult time. RIP, John.
