"John- we were great friends early in our lives.  I will always remember the road trips to Tampa ( the big city...lol).  I love you, I miss you, I wish we could have had one more road trip!   Save me a seat at the "cool people " table."

"I was so sorry to hear of John's passing. We will all miss his cheerful face and wonderful personality. It is easy to say "he won't suffer any longer" and that is true. It is also true that we will miss him so much. Rest in peace, dear John. Love and prayers to the family, especially Carole."

"John,
Words alone cannot express the sadness of losing you. You were a true friend, standing by me during my darkest hours. You are one of the most descent and honorable men that I have had the pleasure of knowing. You will live forever in the hearts of all who love you.
Sincerely,
Nicky"

"There are many words that could describe my nephew John Glorioso—kind, generous, thoughtful, compassionate, fun-loving, humorous, and ADORABLE pop up in my mind immediately.   More than anything, however, John was family-oriented.  He deeply loved his family, and up until he left us, he was always thinking of what he could do for them.

John was not only loved by his family, he was loved by all those who came in contact with him—his friends and customers adored him.   He had a way about him that made everyone feel comfortable and special.  His smile and humor were infectious.

I didn’t get to know my nephew until later in my life, but in those short years, I came to the realization that John was an extraordinary person.  He built a business on hard work, integrity and compassion.  Always thinking of others, he became a friend to his customers.  They were known to stop by the store just to say hello, and John was there to make them feel welcome.  The Cape Coral community will also miss John.  Known for his gregarious ways, John was always organizing events, many of which raised money for charitable organizations.

John was the “go to” person when you wanted any decorating tips or fashion ideas.  He had a great sense of style.  I remember one day when I was visiting my family in Florida John said to me, “GG (a nickname he called me), you really should get your hair cut.  It would make you look younger.”   You know, he was right!  

Even in the midst of his illness, he would call me regularly to see how I was doing, never dwelling on his condition.  He was strong and positive up until the end of his too short life.  

We can all learn from his example on how to live a successful life.  Love of family, respect and compassion for others, a strong work ethic (with lots of fun thrown in), laughter and humor were the hallmarks of his life.  

Such an amazing person will forever live in our hearts.  I believe his loving spirit will be with us forever.  All we need to do is look up to the heavens and talk to him.  As always, he’ll be there to listen.  

Rest in peace, dear John.  I will forever miss your endearing ways.  Thank you for being such a wonderful part of my life."

"I've worked 2 doors down from John for many years and often would go into the store to browse, or have something fixed or something polished and he was always very sweet.
My very deepest sympathies to all his loved ones left behind."

"What an Amazing Man. His heart, his kindness, his dedication, his giving and his Soul was bigger than life.  The world is a sadder place without John Michael in it.  He was a huge help and contributor in bringing cancer awareness and services into our community. My heart is truly saddened by his loss and I miss him terribly."

"I will never forget the day you came in on YOUR birthday to bring me flowers for MY birthday. I will miss your smile the most, I think. And your wacko sense of humor-the late night bizarre texts were the best. Your pain is gone, for which we are grateful. But the world is a little less today than it was just a few short days ago. Well done my friend-be at peace."

"John,
There are hardly words when I heard of your passing. I've known you for close to 30 years and you've been such an amazing person to not only Donna, Joe, or myself. Even when I got Married, you opened your heart to Sarah as well. You will be missed my friend. Heaven certainly gained an Angel. See you on the other side. Love ya!"

"Dear Johnny,

Even though we have not seen each other in years, I can't tell you the pain I felt in my heart when I saw the announcement of your passing. All the memories of the wonderful times our families have shared over the years came rushing back. All the fun times we had together. Gone way too soon, and already missed.

I wish for you to be at peace. Rest easy, my friend.

God Bless You."

"Thank you for being such a wonderful friend of our family.  I will never forget your kindness."

"Dear John, I don't know what to say, so sad you are gone, but glad you are no longer in pain....we've know each other for 25 years, the Friday nights I spent in the store waiting for Donna to get ready and then reconnecting while camping together during the last few summers.    I will miss seeing your great smile at the pool and every time I came in to visit you at the store.  And not to mention Uncle D, who knew back in 91 that we would become family in 2012!  Oh John, you are gone way too soon, so so sad, hugs my friend...I'll go by your campsite and say a little prayer, watch for me as I am there, wishing you were to!  Love you my dear friend!"

"Dear John,

This is so hard to accept.  You are too young to be taken away to heaven.  Although I haven't seen you as much since you moved to Florida I loved the visits we had when I came down to see my mom.  There are so many wonderful memories of our families together. I especially remember when you, your mom and Nancy made a surprise visit to mom.   I thought she was going to have a heart attack when you walked in.  I was so glad I was there with all of you.  My mom loved your family so much as we all did.  Love to Aunt Mary, Jan, Carole, and Nancy.  Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you to find the peace that only our Heavenly Father can give."

"Oh John, the hours we spent many years ago each of us waiting for a customer to come into our businesses!  The talking and laughing and goofing off...squirt bottle chases through the halls etc etc.  Hopefully we helped each other through the quiet times!  Then came Gizmo and how he would run into the shop and slide around the corner and sweep up all our hair!  Now that the two of you reunited at the Rainbow Bridge you can both be happy in the wonderful place you are together.  You have and always will have a special place in my heart and my kids hearts too for the fun loving, special, wonderful person you always were!  RIP my dear John!!!!  Will miss you even though I didn't see you very often anymore....I did stop in every time I was down there!"

""ONE HOUR"

Dear Cousin John,
Many times when I write I sometimes have to search for words or envision my thoughts like sentences coming to me from the sky. Tonight my dear cousin,  I don’t have to search for words because my thoughts are coming from a much closer place…my heart. I only wish that I would have been able to tell you in person but I know my mother and father will convey my thoughts to you up in Heaven.

A few years ago when we were in the hospital visiting our cousin “Bubba”, you decided to buy some food for all of the family and asked me to come with you because you didn’t know the area up in Woodstock. I am so glad you asked me because in that one hour, you and I, for the very first time had the opportunity to have a close wonderful conversation…just me and you. In that hour, I was blessed to understand the real John Glorioso. The most kindest, compassionate, generous, intelligent, family orientated human being I have ever known.

I have visions of our Heavenly family welcoming you in Heaven. Oh my, what a beautiful vision it is. Your Dad, your sister Donna, Your Grandpa Charlie & Grandma Lillian, Uncle Paul, Aunt Vi, Uncle Chuck, Bubba, Aunt Dorothy & Uncle Joe and so many other family & friends. All there to be with for eternity.
  
Johnny, you will be tremendously missed because everybody loved you. Your kindness will never be forgotten, nobody ever forgets a person like you. Rest in peace my dear cousin and please tell my mom & dad I love and miss them. Love, Cousin Joe"

"My Dear Cousin Johnny,

Oh, how we will miss you.  You were such a kind, loving, caring person.  You are loved by family friends and your customers too.  I remember when you were a little guy and your family lived up north; my Mom and (your Great Aunt Dorothy) we would come to visit and you would get so excited.

Later, when you and your family moved to Florida, your Auntie Vi and me came to visit and you did everything you could to make our visit memorable.
I remember the camping trips in your motor home at the ocean.

Cancer took you from us too soon.  You are at peace now, no more pain and suffering.  You will always be loved and "Forever Missed""
