    Grandpa John,
    Luke wanted to give you a hug last night, so I filled in for you and we sent one to heaven.

  2. Jerry Sellner says:

    I will never be able to go into a Perkins again without thinking of you John. Thanks for all your help when I worked at CVC, I greatly appreciated every thing you did for us there. I really enjoyed the times when we would go to lunch and you got me away from the building. Your a wonderful friend and Karen and I will miss you greatly.
