  1. To our dear friend John. We have many great memories of when you lived in Chicago. "Where's my party shorts??" Our thoughts and prayers go out to Vic, Jessica, Delondon, Skylar and Zoe, Kristen and Kanae who have held strong and love you so.

    You will always be with us my friend and we will hold close the laughs and good times that we have shared. You are surrounded by love and will be truly missed.
    Love, Laura and Mark

  2. My Uncle… The strongest man I've ever known. You will never know how grateful I am for you. You were the first and last one to "wet willie" my ear and I always "pulled your finger" when you asked. Haha. The countless times you've given me advice, told me I was beautiful and supported every decision I ever made… I will never forget it. You have been the rock in our family and you will forever be missed. My heart is breaking. I miss you and will always miss you. I hope you are playing horseshoes with my Daddy up there. I love you… I'll be seeing you…
    Your Caitlyn Rose
