  3. John my sincere heart felt tears for your family. I have lost a long time distant friend.


    Your dad is a rare breed, but I know you know this. Your dad was my very first date in elementary. Your grandmother drive us both to Rosenberg Elementary school. He was dressed in a white sport coat black pants and dress shoes. What a handsome date he was and such a gentlemen. We were the first couple on the dance floor. He had a way of making things special. He topped the evening off by defending me a his girl. I will miss him to, but we have his memories. Thank you Janis for being his daughter. If there is anything anything I can do please let me know.

    A dear friend

  4. Dear family of J.V.,

    I knew J.V. when I was 17 yrs.old. We wrote to each other when he was in the army and I can say he was my first love.

    I am very sad to hear of his passing and it will not be the same knowing he is not on this earth anymore.

    I pray God will heal your empty hearts.
