    I’m glad I had an opportunity to visit with John at our 50th high school reunion at the Field Club. I still remember talking about how our last names meant we would sit in the same class room row because alphabetically our last names placed us either ahead of one or behind the other.

    I do not have a memory of high school and college without thinking of John. He was my classmate, teammate and good friend. We shared our youth together and no matter how long it was between meetings we could pick up as if we saw each other yesterday. Kathy,, a day will not go by for the rest of life that I won’t think of him. He loved you immensely. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family.
