Remembering in the 1960's when we all lived on Massachusetts street, you at 808 and me at 833. John's dad was a postman, his mom Ruby was coffee buddies with Dorothy Wass, Patty's mom that lived at 811. We all graduated and John married Carol, Patty married David and I married Kenny and everyone went their separate ways in life. John was a very nice person and you have my condolences and prayers.
