Wow John, I can't believe you're gone. I'll always remember how sweet you were to me while in college when we took Jazz class. You would always keep me company after class so I wouldn't be by myself talking to me about Sicily while waiting for my cousin. You're the reason I love Old Time Grocery poboys. Every time I go there it reminds me of you. You were such a sweetheart and I wish I could have seen you at least once before this to tell you thank you for being a good friend. Rest in Peace John. You will forever be in my heart.

All the comfort of Christ to the friends that I have made; that is your family. The reunion with your dad and your Father is one thing I know of your everlasting being that is taking place at this time. May the God of all and for all reign eternally and peacefully in the hearts of the loved ones that mourn John. Amen.
