  1. We are deeply saddened by the early passing of John. We will always remember his blond curly hair and his somewhat shy demeanor.

    May he rest in peace and enjoy once again golfing with Warren.

    With love,

    The Farahs’

  2. Sue,
    You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. We are so sorry for your loss.

    Bob and Cathy Jacobson and Family

  3. I’m sorry about your dad. I had just sent him a picture of you a couple of months ago from your facebook. He was excited to hear news about you. He’s been my friend forever and we always stayed in touch. Do you know what happened to him?
