  3. John was one of my favorite customers at the ritz.I will miss him coming in because we always had a great time seeing who could top one another with some good natured insults.

  4. Lynn & Karen,

    So very sorry to hear of your loss. I remember John from the time he was bowling on the team. I will never forget “gotcha” or the trips to state and dinners following. Karen, you were the apple of your Daddy’s eye. Sorry for not making service but know that my prayers are with you both. God bless and keep you both.
