I can’t tell you how heartbreaking it is knowing he is gone. I have many fond memories of John, fishing at your home, and one before you were even born–I tried to trick him in a Pepsi-Coke taste test, and of course Uncle John was right. I just knew that afternoon at Mom and Dads that I had him fooled.Many weekend and holiday times come to mind. I am glad he is no longer in pain and finally at peace. I love you guys more than you know and rest in peace Uncle John.
We had a lot of good times in the last several years. You were a good friend to talk to and ask advice. You seen most of my kids come into this world and I would share my stories of them with you. We’ve watched many a ballgame together. The Browns always struggling but you where with them. The Indians being close but not quite there. You were with them. We seen a couple Buckeye championships together. I’m going to miss you and our get together swatching sports or just talking about life. We didn’t always see eye to eye. But we got along like brothers. Fly high my friend I will always think of you when your teams are on or when I see a big game. I love ya buddy and we will watch a ballgame later down the road. RIP JB-
