From the first day John, I have valued our open, close and great friendship.
A true friend, who offered support, help, and companionship.
Our periodic lunches were terrific times together.
You will always be valued and loved as the truest of friends.
You will be missed - heartbroken with your passing

Dearest John:
May the longtime sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you
Guide your way home.

I did not know John for a very long time, but it didn't take long to know what a kind and caring person he was. He was always there to give a helping hand or a kind word of encouragement to get you through some rough times. Don't remember John ever turning anyone away in times of their need. I am sad that his life has been cut short, however his journey has come to an end and it was time to go. May your new journey be filled with much love, joy, happiness and enlightenment. You are finally free to explore all of the Cosmos and learn about the mysteries of our Universe.
Bonn Voyage John, your friend Bohdanna
