    Dear John and family,

    I am so sorry to hear of the death of “young John”. I remember babysitting the kids. He certainly fought the fight after his accident.

    I’m sorry I am unable to attend. I’m sure John and Dana are watching over all of us now.

    My condolences to all.
    Dorrie Jean
