So sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I worked with your father in the AFD and went hunting with him a few times. He was always fun to be around.

I think about you with a broken heart but a smile. We quickly became friends, we had something in common and that was food hahaha that's why I smile. Whenever I would see you all we did was talk about foods and cooking because we both loved to cook and eat lol. John you were just a nice kind man and always made me feel comfortable and welcome. Thank you for allowing me into your space and to be able to call you my friend. Rest easy buddy your free from pain now and where you wanted to be with your wife. My heart breaks but I know your in a better place. My heartfelt condolences to Stacey
