Our families were neighbors in Spotsylvania County from 1945-1954. John and I went from first grade through seventh grade together. He was an intelligent person full of spirit and adventure. It is no wonder that he ended up on the Richmond Police Force where he would encounter unmeasured adventure! Godspeed, John, See you on the other side!
