I worked with John aka Jack when he was working at Gerhardt F Meyne. I was from their outside accounting firm Blackman Kallick. John was a sweet good man. Helpful knowledgeable and had decency all over him. He by his way of being was a great teacher on how to be a good person. I am grateful for John. I hope he is comfortable where he now is.
