I've known John most of my life. I was a small boy when I first met him in Lombard, IL, where we went to the same church. His son Tom and I are about the same age. It was quite a treat for me to be his "chaplain" when he moved to The Palms. I doubt either of us would have ever expected that when I was growing up. Though it has been a few years since I last saw him, it was a joy to still be connected during Christmas letters and occasionaly e-mail. His life was a blessing.
