Not sure what to say?

I fondly remember my friend, John , from a lifetime ago. We were good friends in high school..... But drifted apart as we struck out on our individual paths. I read thoughtful and kind comments from others and it makes me feel grateful that his life was blessed with people who appreciated and loved my old friend. My condolances go out to those who were important in his life and who will keep his memory alive in their hearts. His years were too short. Jo

To John's Family,
I am very sorry to read about John's passing. When we were younger, we shared many wonderful times and memories including the following: The "four J's"; Mt. Katahdin trip; Campobello venture to see President Johnson; and travel to UMM in his black Ford during our college days. He was a dear friend and will be missed.
