We still cannot believe what has happened. We both so enjoyed are lunches out with you John and Ann. No one will ever know how much we will both miss you John. You were both so very kind to me when Gordon had his stroke. Your kindness and helpfulness was so appreciated. You always said you loved Gordon like a brother what a wonderful compliment. We will love you forever John. We will always be there for Ann Adam and Andrew. Sleep tight special friend.xx

John always had time for a chat and brought a positive spin to the conversation. He was generous, kind and helpful. He knew my name and made me feel important. He was a light.
