  4. Lynn,
    I am so sorry to learn of John’s passing. I have so many memories from childhood on up.He was our paper boy and would enjoy a snack when he would come by so one time I made him peanut butter cookies with vanilla waffers he loved them.
    John was such a great man with so many friends.
    I find great comfort in Rev 21:4 and have the great promise of seeing him again.
    Thoughts and prayers,
