Judy, I was real sorry to get the call this morning about John's passing. I use to come to the shop to watch just him work. Met him at Bally's.

Please accept my families most sincere sympathies. I know I wasnt a part of Johns life for many years, but he was and will always be a part of my fondest memories. Johns inventive and engineering skills wowed me at a time in my life where I needed influence; I know he has had a dramatic effect on my life and career's direction, and for that I will forever be thankful.
Our prayers are with you; if there is anything you need that I can help with please feel free to call or email.
Please be comforted in the fact that John is comfortable and happy where he is now.

The Birkners- Randy, Tami, Noah and Nate.
