    May I offer my deepest condolences to John’s family and friends. I had known him since High School and you could see the great man he would become even then. He was a very good friend-thoughtful, supportive, smart and also downright funny. In these last few months I also found myself fighting cancer. We spoke frequently and when we did he always began by asking about me. A really classy guy. I will miss him immensely.

    Rosemary, Dr. Schock, Eileen and Kim, I want you to know that Nicki and I share your loss and are thinking of you often.
