    My husband and I are so sorry for your loss. We would see John every Sunday ushering for Mass. Such a sweet and kind man. Always
    reliable and happy. We know that he is a man of God and he is with his family in heaven and his health is perfect. We will keep John and the family in
    our prayers. Know that we are here for you if you should need us. Peace of Christ be with you and may your memories be ones of joy and peace.
    The Lord is the king of our hearts and he is loving John. There are not tears or sadness in heaven. Only Smiles and laughter. Please John watch over us and pray for us.
