Joan, Steven, Shelly, and Jodi~ I am so sorry for your loss. John was so proud of his family, I learned so much about each of you and your many talents. He shared so many joyful memories made with each one of you. He laughed about the shenanigans he and Steven had while Joan was away. John brought joy and laughs to so many people.
