    Sorry to learn of your loss. John was a very pleasant person. I loved to listen to him tell his military service stories and he had many. John had battle illness for sometime and I know he is now in a place of peace with no suffering. Prayers for Karen and the family that they find the peace, comfort and healing needed to recover from such a loss. Love each and everyone of you. Peace be with you.
