Your dad was such a sweert man. He was very good friends with my Dad, Adolph Bruette. When my Mom died Johnny came at least once a week and took my Dad to Buckys for breakfast. When my Dad was in the home he came to visit several times. My Dad' s dementia affected his speech so he could say very little but when John walked into his room he hollared out "Hi there Johnny" He gave me a history lesson of the Bear Creek days. I will always remember him and be grateful to him for the happiness he brought to my Dad in such sad times in my Dad's life. There will be quite the party when they all reunite in heaven.

I'm happy that Jack is now in peace in the love of our Lord. He was so kind after Jim died, and called often to California to check up on me. Later on, over the years, he still called periodically, and we had some good talks. My prayers go out to him and all the family.
