Mr. Akers,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served in the U.S. Army Air Forces during WW II and also for being a member of the Greatest Generation. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I am very sorry to hear about your dad's passing Andy. Your father was sincerely a super nice guy.My prayers are with you and your mom.

In loving memory of John Akers.

My deepest sympathy to the family and friends. John was one of the sweetest, most Christian people I've ever had the honor of knowing. I will remember him very fondly.

Susan, Erin, and I would like to express our deepest sympathies for your loss. I will always treasure the memories of time spent with John at his home in Salem.
