    Aloha to you Rosemary and all of John’s friends and family,
    John and I graduated from Long Beach engineering college together. We have stayed in touch all these years him in Seal Beach and me in Hawaii. I am deeply saddened by his passing. I had the pleasure of being his friend and him my best friend. I will miss our discussions of worldly events and things that mattered. Thursday I shall have a remembrance ceremony here for you John Pierre Schock.
