Not sure what to say?

What a void I feel. Who can fill those shoes?

To the entire family: We wish you God's peace, love, and curing. As a coach of more than 35 years I have never met a more devoted, hard working, and caring team-mate not only for his team but for the world around him.
We know that God will be gentle with him and look down on his family with gracious love.
Coach Carl and Anna Blanchard

To Ruthie and Johnny's children, I am truly sorry for your loss. Johnny was a wonderful person whom I will miss dearly. I so enjoyed our conversations together before he got ill. I was unable to pay my respects in person and for that I am also very sorry. Just know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
