Jack and I, too, had many things in common, although I only got to know him through our Alzheimer's support group with Bobby. I am retired AF, taught at the AF Academy Medical Group in Colorado Springs, was assigned for seven years in Germany and retired from Sheppard AFB. The military has a unique way of connecting people. Jack is at peace with our Lord and Savior; Bobby's friends will wrap our arms around her and pray for strength and peace in the days ahead. "Be not afraid, for HE is with you always." Blessings.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief. I did not know John but I am a member of the Alzheimer’s support group that Bobby attended. I feel closeness because my Dad retired from the Air Force also and we lived in Germany too. I pray for your strength and healing.

I am grateful to have know John even for a short while. He was kind and accepted me for who I am. The most obvious about John was the love he had for Roberta. He was definitely a dog lover.

Jack was a true friend, always willing to help with or do whatever the occasion or situation required. He was a teacher and inspirer, gracious and giving, and anyone was lucky to know him.
