John was such a sweet kid. I had a lot of fun working with him and his best friend Cole doing inventory at Roberts Bros when they were young. Joan, Anna, and Bea, I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I know John was your biggest supporter. He was Mama's boy all the way. Love and Hugs to you all.
