Irma, Mary & Agnes,

I am praying for all of you.  John was very special to me, he never made me feel like the "baby" when we were all there at the house.  I will hold dear the memories of walking in the woods with him (and coming out with ticks on us that my dad would have to burn out of us with matches- LOL), and sitting on the swing with him just talking like there was no age difference between us at all.  My first Christmas card every year was from him and I will miss that dearly.   I hope we can get together sometime soon, though it won't be the same without John.

RIP John - I love you!

We are praying for Johns family, I have a lot of memories of John ,Especially when his whole family came to visit us on the farm in Illinois.. John and his sisters would play hide and seek or any other game we could play with me my brothers and little sister . The one game I remember most were the corn cob fights out in the barn..   Rest in peace John !
