John and I worked together when he worked at AVM. He was most proud of his children and worked to make sure they had a good education. I am so sorry for your loss.

To the Willoughby Family,
I did not have the pleasure of knowing John, but have known Raymonda for many years. I am saddened by his death. Raymonda spoke often of him. May your many memories help carry each of you through this difficult time. The family is in my thoughts and prayers.
