    So sorry to hear of Johns Passing. John was the greatest neighbor anyone could ask for at Indian Lake Ohio. Thank you John for all you did for our our grandparents at the lake many years ago. I'll always remember our chats about the Buckeyes while you were making your homemade hobo stew.

    With sincere Condolences to Dee, Faith and family.
