    John was the best friend a person could have. He took me under his wing when he found out I was Marvannas friend. He loved playing cards and when my kids were younger, took them for a ride in his car on the beach. My son loved it. He always had Sassy try to bite me. Famous words “bite her Sassy. Bite her”. My words were…bird soup tonight. And he would laugh. Love you John. You are not in pain any more and I don’t know how you did it. Rest In Peace.
