MY thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. I will be unable to attend the viewing due to College obligations, but forever I will remember the many days at Moffas and representing John and his family. He was a true friend when I needed one, and a gentleman to all.

Dear Aunt Kass, Dennis, Kevin, and Rob. My warmest thoughts are with you in this time of sadness. Uncle John was a beacon for my Dad, who passed away almost two years ago. I have wonderful memories of times spent with Uncle John and all of you in my youth. Would you believe that my love of the guitar started in your home? Yep, there was a beautiful guitar there and a songbook of James Taylor's songs. (I'd love to set my fingers to work on that instrument again.) Thinking about those times in your home is so warm to me. Be at peace. Uncle John was a wonderful dad, husband, and and friend to many; he is sorely missed and will live in our hearts. With love, your nephew and cousin, "Little" Steve
