    John had a good heart. I know his family is suffering and I feel so bad for all of them. It makes no sense when a person with so much to give and so many who count on him, leaves us so early. Trusting God isn't always easy but my prayer is that his family, especially his partner and children will find the strength to get through this.

    John was a handsome outgoing person. Had the pleasure of meeting him when he was quite young. Saw him at a local bank a couple of years ago. He came up to me to re-introduce himself. He was that same beautiful happy young man. So sorry for his family and love ones. He left too soon.
