Lauren, Kelsey, Gwen - every encounter with John, he was nice, sincere, funny person. He helped my father with many projects, and was greatly appreciated. He helped the community whenever he could and he will be greatly missed. Mine and my families prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Lauren and girls, Paul and I were so sorry to hear of John's passing. He was such a nice man. We enjoyed talking to him at Gwen and Caroline's games and girl scouting events. You and the girls will be in our prayers. God bless you! Paul and Brenda Burns, Wakefield Rhode Island

To Lauren & girls, I am so sad to hear of John's passing. Over the years we had become friends with both John & Lauren. John was a very special person with a heart so huge with compassion. I know how you are feeling as I went through this just one year ago when my husband died. If you need anything or just to talk, I am here for you. I feel your very deep rooted pain at this time. Just hand in there.
