    Rob, Shirley, Donna, Elizabeth, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Dad. Evelyn, words cannot express the sorrow I feel at your loss of your life partner. Ann, you have lost a fantastic father-in-law, Brian and Colin, you guys have lost not only a great granddad but a terrific role model. I only met John a few times but he always struck me as a real gentleman; so kind, caring, and accepting. My prayers are with all of you at this sad time.
