Karen and Family
So very saddened by the news of John passing!
Many memories of him when you lived in Lake City, and of you as well. He was a good man, very conscientious in his work with the County Sheriff Dept.
May you find peace and comfort in the days ahead and hold tight to the memories shared! God Bless you and your family. Dick and Susan Young
