    On behalf of my late parents, I want to say how much my mom and dad loved being in the company of John and Pat. They always looked forward to seeing them at Xerox retiree gatherings, and other get-togethers. They always spoke so fondly of the Laluks, and I hope your family is able to find some comfort in knowing they both touched the lives of so many people in so many ways.

    My sincere condolences to John’s family. I met John thru the Xerox Retires Club several years ago and we became very good friends. John Pat were wonderful fun loving people. They will be missed but the memories will always bring a smile to my face.

    Nancy, I am so sorry about the loss of your father, and of your mother before. I have always remembered you from high school and just wanted you to know that there are some extra thoughts and prayers with you these days. May God bring comfort to both you and David. And hold you always in His love and care.

    Nancy, Before Covid your dad was always in the store to see you and since Covid, you have spent all of your days off doing things for and with him. You were the best kind of daughter to have. I hope you know that your Wegmans’s family have you in our thoughts and prayers.

    I worked with John at Xerox for many years. He was always pleasant and had a great sense of humor. He was one of the nicest men I knew and he will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know him. My sincere condolences to his family, especially his son Dave who I know well.
