Mike and I had the pleasure of many a dinner with John over the past few years (with Diane and Ed) and were blessed to be able to share a "toast" with him just a week ago; He was a special person and he will be dearly missed. Love and strength to all is family in this time. He goes to a better place to be with all who we have loved on this earth
