Dear Terri, John, Stevie and all the Family,
I am so very sorry to hear of your Fathers passing. It was my pleasure to get to know your Father as well as work with him and have him on our Housekeeping Team. John was well liked by all of his coworkers and the resident's at Golden Hill HCC. The last time i got to see him was at your Mom's memorial service and was glad we got to talk awhile. My love, thoughts and prayers are sent to you and may god comfort you at this sad time. aka: Aunt Judy
