Not sure what to say?

It was with great sorrow that I read of John's passing. We worked together at Hughes for nearly 30 years. Additionally, John played center field for the Hughes Employees Association Tucson (HEAT) for many years and left us with many stories. I will miss him greatly.

I am so sorry for your loss; my condolences to all of Mr Menche's loved ones and friends. I was friends with Anthony a lifetime ago.
