John the gentle giant. I met John in 2001. He was kind hearted, a great friend and companion. We shared many laughs…he was a great fan of Larry, Curly and Moe…lol 😂. He loved people and had a great gift to gab. We would go to Meijer and on the way out he would talk to every cashier down the line and on occasion bump into an old friend and I would have to find someplace to sit down to wait after introductions. I will miss him dearly….love you. Enjoy your new path.

Greetings, So sorry to hear of your fathers death. My prayers will be with all of you. There are many memories popping up in my thoughts. Good times in Onamia, playing cards and fishing. Which included time spent with Aunts, uncles, cousins and our grandmother Emily. Martinis and poker and of course stinky cheese. L There definitely are many more. We are blessed to have such loving memories of our family. I'm sure you hold many fond memories of your dad and mom too. Holding onto the good stuff and the joy they gave to us is the gift! 🙏🏻😇 Love Mark
