    I have known you for almost 6 years since the day Jen brought me over to meet you n Karen and you made me feel so comfortable and very easy to talk to, I could tell right away the love you had for your family because you talked about them all the time, I feel horrible I didn’t get to come n tell you goodbye that Saturday but I am comforted knowing I did get to see you one last time and say hi John and see you were finally back at home where you belong around your family…. rest easy John and I’ promise you I will take care of and protect your daughter…. keep watching over us all and I’m sure you’ll be cheering right along with everyone else……Go HUSKERS… 😞
