    So sorry Laura for your loss. I never got to meet your husband personally but he seemed like a tremendous man.

    Laura, you and John helped make the 2013 Omaha “Play Me, I’m Yours” street piano project a tremendous success. Such a great time…especially at the Tree of Life Sculpture.

    I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Thank you so very much for the opportunity to be part of John’s life.
