John and Elaine were good friends to my parents. I enjoyed eating dinner with John and the gang at the Greyhound when I came home for visits. John, Connie. and I spent plenty of money trying to win stuffed animals from the claw machine there. I will cherish my stuffed shark that John won and gave to Connie to give to me because I lost a fortune trying to win it. Rest easy my friend. Until we meet again... Condolences, love, and prayers to his family.
