Dear Sueann and Christine,
We are so sorry for your loss. It breaks my heart that we won't be able to attend John's funeral memorial, as August 3rd is our wedding anniversary and Dan and I had made travel plans.
You are in our thoughts and more significantly you are in our prayers, as God knows best the comforting you need. It may be understood that John's pains are all gone now, but the heart-break you must feel, none of us can truly comprehend if we are to be honest.
Dan and I, along with your cousins Chris, Matt and Stephanie send our love and our hope of comfort.
Now and Always,
Sue, we send our condolences to you at this time. John was a real help and inspiration to us during our lives. Hugs and prayers to you and your family.
Sue and Christina
I am so deeply sorry to hear about John. Please know that I am thinking about you during this time of sadness
So sorry for your loss, we didn`t know John was so ill again. The Higher Power must have needed a Trucker! He sure was a good friend!
Larry knew John from when we lived in Corunna and Larry had his own truck. They, I guess, were trucker buddies. We were sad to hear of his passing at such an early age. Take care.
May you find comfort and support from family and friends.
Sue: We are sending healing hugs to you and Christine during this difficult time. Sincerely, Gord & Fran.
