Dear Nancy,

I would like to offer my heart felt sympathy for you at this time. During my tenure with PenDotI had the pleasure of working with John. He made my time there bearable. John was fair and one of the nicest men you could ever meet. He could sense when I was not doing well emotionally and managed to help pull me through those dark times. I will miss him and and find solace in the fact that he is in a better place and that he is no longer in pain. It won't be the same without my weekly calls to John and I will miss him dearly.

God bless you and your family

My deepest sympathy goes out to John's family and friends. John was a very nice young man in junior and senior high school. I am always saddened to see one of my former classmates pass away.

Sincere condolences to Aunt Peanut . He will be missed by many. I remember him coming up with Dad to help us after the flood. He got to experience his first Big Bear hoagie(5 lbs of meat) and he was just amazed by it.
