Everyone who knew John knew he was kind, giving, thoughtful and literally lived to do for his family. Although we feel robbed of many years with him, the girls and I know how lucky we are to have had him as long as we did. We had nothing left unsaid with John. He always told us how much he loved us and how proud he was of us; we always knew where he stood. The three of us did the same and made certain he knew how grateful we were for him in his final days. We will miss his hugs, surprises, and gentle smile, but we will never forget him.
