Dear Laura, Emma, John, Chris & Family, how sad to find John's obituary just as Gayle Murphy and I were planning another trip North, hopefully to visit again. It was six years ago that we had that wonderful day with you. Seems like yesterday. Laura and Emma, my heart breaks for you. I hope all the memories you have can fill a tiny piece of the emptiness his passing leaves. Having worked with John for years at APT, we met while we were both preparing for our alcohol and drug counselor certification. He was so nervous and I can remember how happy he was when he passed the test! Even though the work we did was challenging, with his sense of humor, John always managed to find a way to keep me laughing. My most enduring memory is that he was the first one on the lunch train, even at 10 in the morning! "Who is taking the otters? Who was going to go to Cappettas to pick up the subs?!" Gotta love him! ❤
