John will be greatly missed. I will miss seeing him as I walk around the veterans home. Hearing him say oh no she's doing nothing again. I had a special bond with him . Linda thanks for sharing your wonderful husband with us. It was wonderful getting to know him . Your family will be in my prayers. There will be no one that can fill his shoes ever. Big hugs to you and your family.
