 Our most sincere condolences are extended to the entire family.

You knew John as a very special husband, father, grand-father, brother and uncle.

We knew John as a friend and a very, very special person with whom we had hoped to spend many enjoyable travel days with on the open road one day soon.

God has seen fit to bring John into his caravan earlier than any of us could have imagined. We know that John is busy helping to plan the remaining journey for the rest of us and we know and trust that John will have prepared a special KOA for all of us to enjoy when next we meet.

Sandi and I will never again even think of a Motor Coach vacation without looking at each other and smiling - both knowing that we are each thinking of John.

 Dear Mina and family,

I have had loss in my family and I know it is very hard on the entire family when one passes before us. John was a vibrant and caring person who wished nothing more than to be with his family, traveling all over the country. I hope for all of you that you have peace within knowing he is in a heavenly place prepared by God himself. In time, if you will, still carry on and enjoy the beauty of life all around. I am sure that is what he would want you to do and I believe he will be there with you wherever you go.

May God Bless each one of you. We embrass you and wish you well....

Celebrate his life today.

With Love,

 Seven-up may your RV in heaven be as grand and glorious as you have been to us and all that love you.
Our hearts wrap around your family in this thier time of grief.


When I'm gone, release me, let me go;
I have so many things to see and do.
Don't tie yourself to me with tears.
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you love.
You can only guess how much that
You gave me in happiness.
I thank you for your love you each have shown.
But it is time I travel alone.
So grieve a while for me, grieve you must;
Then let your grief be comfort by trust.
It's only for a little while we must part.
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on.
So if you need me, call and I'll come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near.
If you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile and a

 Dear Mina,

We spent many fun times with you and John when we first moved to Port St. Lucie - we'll always remember our many dinners out and the cookouts at the beach along with the Trainques and Rogers.

John was a quite a character, unlike anyone we'd ever known...with a heart as big as the Grand Canyon and always ready to lend a helping hand!

We're so glad we got to spend a day with John, you, Jan and Nel in February while we were staying on Hutchinson Island - we have a great picture of us all to remember the day.

Mina, we're so sorry for your loss - please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Love, Phil & SUe

 I am so very sorry for your sudden loss of sevenup. I enjoyed having him in paltalk. I can still hear his voice and I think it will always be in my mind.
Xmarx...I loved your talk about your father in the grape vine the other morning. It was a wonderful tribute to him.
I know your family is one of faith and you will miss your father so much but you know he is at peace now.
Maybe he will exert some pressure up there for us!

We've thought about you and the kids every day since we heard the sad and "shocking" news of John's death. Still can't believe it! So glad you have such good friends down there, and I hope you will take comfort in knowing that you and all your family will be in our prayers. Looking back as a teenager I can remember so many thoughtful things that my BIG Brother did for our parents. And after you and John were married that continued through the years! For example, the beautiful fresh cut Christmas Tree that he would deliver and put up every year at 4230 W. Michigan Ave., this being just one of so many memories, all the holiday dinners with your wonderful cooking. Now you must take care of yourself and know that John will most certainly be missed.
