    I had the pleasure of meeting John while working and several years later became his neighbor and friend.
    I loved chatting with John and enjoying a laugh and will cherish the times we spent playing pick up sticks on his dining room table.
    Thank you for sharing kindness with my family John. You are loved and missed.
    Love Tessa, Chris and Piper James.
