It saddens me to know you have passed away. I have often thought of you and your family through the years. I was pretty small when we first met but, I always thought you were so nice and came from a very kind family. I lived across the street from you with my 5 other brothers and 2 sisters. I was a middle son,,,,Steve Donovan. Please know I will keep you in my prayers going forward. God Bless you John!
