  1. Dear Eva,
    How sorry we are to hear about Uncle Johnny. We send you our condolences and know that you will take comfort from the 58 wonderful years you spent with him. He was a much loved man.

  2. I always thought he was a super nice man and very good to Scott and me. I also thought he did a good job of raising his children (all of which I know well). I have a great amount of respect for both him and Eva.

  3. Dear Mark and Family,
    I am deeply sorry for your loss, your Dad was a great man. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time of loss.

    John’s life for over 90’s years was a blessing, but his ‘passing’ still is hard. May you find peace that he ‘left’ in great fashion, and know that we are thinking of you at this difficult time.

    Kate and Tom Schranz
