Memories of John

Oct 13, 2012

Senior, You will be missed more than you ever thought possible. Your wit and smile made my trips to Canada every year! You never ceased to amaze me with your knowledge of so many things. You always seemed to peg out on me in our yearly cribbage games, and kept me full of laughter as we hit the water for a long day of fishing. I will not miss you, but rather keep you with me everyday. Every big fish I catch, I'll know you were helping guide me. We'll see you in Canada next year!

Today I learned to make my own breakfast coffee, & put out my vitamins. Thanks for doing it all these years, Honeyl. I love you John.
