  1. John, you will be missed and I’m sorry for any suffering you had but now you are happy and comfortable and you and Bob can play cards, build buildings and argue politics. I’m sure he’s happy that you are there to get you in trouble like he did in school. You were good hearted and good friend Happy trails friend.

  2. I remember how John used to help me fix flat bicycle tires when he worked at Carson Johnson’s Conoco Station back in the 1950’s. Carson had a candy machine in the lobby of his station that had a QUESTION MARK in one of the dispensor windows. Put in a nickel (back in the good old days), pull the lever, and sometimes two candy bars would drop out. I used to buy gas there (quarter a gallon) for my lawn mower and work on them in the grease bay when the station wasn’t busy. That was also my favorite stop off for gas, cold drinks, and candy bars between lawn jobs during those hot summer days; so long, long ago when I was young. Bill Werzner, Houston, Texas
