Oh John, how I loved to sit next to you at pass the ace. I loved your animated reaction and laugh when I gave you a bad card. I loved how you would come to the restaurant and help. We had so much fun around that kitchen table, you were my favourite old man. 🥰. I laughed any time I had to call you, you know why. I loved your reaction on your 70th birthday when you saw Elsa. We will miss you so so much. I will rely on all these memories to keep my heart grateful I got to be your friend for so many years. To Elsa, Bridget and Sabrina, I love you muchly and am so sorry for loss. Peace be with you. ❤️❤️❤️
