Dear John and Susan, So sorry for your loss. Your Dad and Martha Lou were childhood friends from Junior High through the class of 1950 and at Asbury Methodist. Please accept my deepest condolences! – – Pat
John was a childhood hero of mine. As the only child of Uncle Ed and Aunt Dorothy, who were my “summertime parents”, I got to spend a lot of time with John. He and Martha were very kind to me, as well as very patient with my childhood whims. Both were excellent roll models, and I cherish those days of so many years ago. Such great and lasting memories.
May he rest in peace.
Thanks Bubba! That is so sweet.
