I never met John but am deeply saddened to hear of his passing while so young. I am friends with Bonnie who brings such joy and light to our world. I thank John and Lorraine for helping shape their daughter into such an incredible spirit. It is quite apparent she had wonderful parents to be so. My condolences to your families and may John rest in peace. Much love to you and yours.

To love another person, is to see the face of God. We will all miss John, as you are long time family friends. I will miss the sports banter between us, but my family and I will miss his big, warm, inviting smile, and personality. I pray for peace for you, Lorraine, and your family. Love, Jack and John McHugh, and Eleanor Romanelli
