Cathy, our hearts and prayers are with you and the kids at this time. Uncle John was a just a super nice guy and I am glad to have had an opportunity to know him. He provided a lot of comfort to me while Scott was attending high school just knowing that he was keeping a careful eye on him.
Andrew, Cynthia, Jordan, Kian and Aunt Mary.
