    Oh I will miss you John. I enjoyed when the last time I seen John at Cash Wise. We became friends 16 years ago. He was walking his dog when I stopped and asked him if he had seen my lost dog. Well John walked his dog many times looking for my dog. Soon I would stop by his house on 1st ave n and he would stop at my house on3rd ave n to visit. He came to my family birthday parties for my daughter which he loved. My brothers couldn’t believe the arms on John! After I moved to southside John would stop over and visit. I loved his love for life, dancing and his laughter that would warm your heart. I will miss you dear friend!
