I have many fond memories of John when we lived South of Prairieburg on neighboring farms. I babysat with the John & Rick (yes, changed your diapers LOL). He could be a little stinker, in a good way, & very active. We were very close to the fanily. Now in peace and out of pain. My deepest sympathy to John's family. May the Lord comfort you at this time of loss. Hugs Arlene "Kula"
