    John I remember, when I was a cop , our Saturday talks, along with your, son, at the Shell station on Middle Neck Rd. Great Neck, NY. I also remember that you came to my father's 90th birthday party at 13 Orchard St. in Great Neck in 1998. Many Meades were there, and we had a great time.
    All my love and prayers for you and your family.

    Dear G John,
    You were the only grandfather I knew growing up and I love you tremendously. Thank you for always bringing joy and laughter to the world with your smart and witty remarks and for sharing all of your life stories with our family. There are many times I can remember you making me laugh so much I would have to catch my breath! There are also times I can remember long talks where I learned much through your wisdom and experiences in life. I miss you dearly and pray for you to have unending peace and comfort with the angels. I love you!
    <3 Katie
