So sad to hear of this. I worked for John and Rita for 4 years. I have wonderful memories about life and hardships. I learned so much from them. I was able to talk to John about a month ago, Mostly talked about Rita, not himself. I will truly miss him. Nick and Amy , your dad was so proud of you kids. He shared many stories with me. I will keep your family in my prayers.

To all of the Ezop family?

I have such wonderful memories of John as the brother of our Sister Wanda. I
have kept in touch over the years. I have always had great admiration for him
because of how he handled the hardships that he encountered. I spoke
to him after Christmas ans was just going to call him when I received the message
about his passing.
I regret that I cannot attend his funeral because of COVID-19 restrictions but I will
definitely be there in spirit. I will miss talking to him but take solace in knowing
that he is now in peace and free from suffering.
May he rest in the warm embrace of his loving God.

My prayers and deepest sympathy to all of the family members.

Peace and love,
Sister Rosemary O'Donnell
