I've had the privilege of knowing John since 1995. I had met Tonia and Tony and we immediately became friends. When I relocated back to Prairie City, John said "You always have a home here with us." John always made me feel like I was a daughter. He was a good listener, gave me advice even when I didn't ask for it. (LOL) but most of all, he never judged me. He accepted me for the person I was. I have always looked up to John and Delores because their relationship is what we all hope to find in our significant other, a house full of love, laughter, but most of all strength and endurance. As I continue to part of their extended family, I see all the qualities that John has passed on to Tonia, Tony and GI. I hold a special place for John in my heart. -- Dayle
