I'm so sorry for your loss I will keep the family in my prayers as you go
through this difficult time.  I enjoyed getting to know John. He was a great
person even as a bus driver he knew how to inspire us kids. After school I
had the pleasure of going to church with him. He was such an inspiration to
me. May God be with you all.
