Pat, my deepest sympathies to you and your sons. I will always treasure the times John and I spent singing together as members of the Milwaukee Choristers and the Ad Hoc Ensemble. I will never forget how John and I used to enjoy exchanging bad jokes and puns with one another. I would not be surprised if he already met up with my Mom Audrey, both of them singing together in perfect harmony in the Heavenly Choir. You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days and months ahead.

Condolences to Pat, # 1 son, # 2 son, #3 son and # 4 son and all of the family. I enjoyed many years of friendship with John at Garden Homes. Yes, there were the bad jokes and many games of sheepshead. And always lots of good humor. Will miss him at the Garden Homes reunions when they happen again.
