Dear Judy, My heart was so sad to hear of John´s passing! I only met him that one time over at Lynch Nissan in Auburn! As we waited on our vehicles to be serviced that day, I enjoyed getting to know your husband and some of y´all´s story! He made quite an impression on me in that short period of time! He was so friendly and open and interesting, just so easy to talk with! Y´all spoke of your love for Southern Gospel concerts which sure struck a cord with me since I have always loved Southern Gospel Songs and quartets etc. I know you will miss him so very much! I thought that day what a great couple y´all made and how much you two were just enjoying life! I am so glad you had those years with him! I will be thinking of you as John is laid to rest! My prayers are for you and his boys to find comfort in your sweet memories! Love & Hugs, Judy Robinson
