Not sure what to say?

Everyone at The Gathering Place will be sorry to learn of John's passing. We enjoyed having you both attend, and he has already been missed among us these last few months. You are a devoted wife and caregiver, an inspiration to us all. Our hearts go out to you, and we will pray for you as a team at our next Gathering.

Lois: Very sorry about John. John was an excellent individual and was liked by everyone. Unfortunately I can't be there tomorrow. Bad cold and don't feel good, and I wouldn't want to give someone my cold. I'll be thinking of John and my memories of him during the Services tomorrow. Eldon Nuss

June and I did not know John and Lois well, but we felt their loving and kind spirit whenever we saw them in the neighborhood. They had a Christmas spirit indeed; it is well that John returns "home" at this time of the year.June and Jim Nance

I am honored to have known such a great man and father to my sister-in-law Renee; husband Sean and my cherished nieces Megan, Kathleen, Courtney and Kelsey-we enjoyed several holidays and watching sports events for the girls-he was such a pleasure to be around and so knowledgeable; humble and full of integrity. May peace and cheerful memories be with his family at this difficult time knowing how much he was loved and respected.

I will sure miss my Uncle Johnny but will always treasure the wonderful memories he has given me throughout my life. Sending hugs and prayers to my Aunt Lois and my cousins Lynneece, Jay, Renee and Jeff and their families.

I have cherished memories of our family gatherings as a child and I was fortunate to visit with John many times in his visits to Colorado. John was my uncle, my godfather and a role model. I always appreciated his very deliberate style of telling a story, his unique insights on many topics and his passion for golf. I recall many interesting and meaningful conversations together over many years. However, I will mostly covet memories of John during family gatherings sharing stories and laughter...

Thinking of you all, sad with you all. Uncle John will be missed until we see him again in heaven. Praying God's comfort for his/your beautiful family that we love.

Aunt Lois, I am so sorry for your Loss. Our prayers are with you and the family at this time of sorrow. Uncle John will be surely missed. Love Lisa ,Tony Berardino amd Family

This is my uncle of the most generous & loving individuals I have ever known...a true family man & our entire family will miss him for the rest of our days. Rest in peace uncle Johnny.
