  5. I met John more than 24 years ago. Soon we became good colleagues and close friends. John showed a great deal of integrity in all aspects of his life and always provided me with a great deal of encourgement and support in life and work for which I am forever indebted to him. I will never forget our close friendship and the mutual repect that we had for each other. You will always be in my heart as a great friend.

    Rosemary, Dr. Schock, Eileen and Kim, I share your loss and sorrow.
