Rita & Bob, I just heard and was so heart broken to hear that John had passed. I really enjoyed catching up with him last year when I ran into him at the grocery store. He talked to me like we were best friends that had been separated for years and he really made me laugh a lot!! I know that your lives will be empty without him, but try to remember just the good times that make you smile. Love you both. Teresa
