    My prayers go out to all the family during this difficult. Having worked with John and to see him deteriorate the way he did before having to leave Burton & Robinson was heart breaking because he had to give up something he loved so much. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless.

    Condolences to John’s family. We met John a few times at Breezy Knoll Residence Care and always enjoyed his cranky sense of humor. We played bingo with him and that was a real hoot. He seemed to be a nice fellow and I will miss him.
