I always admire the two of you and the way in which you attended to everyone around you. I loved talking with John after church and soon learned that I should not ask if he’d like my assistance. He was so strong, so handsome and so thoughtful. I know this is a rough time for you but know that many of us are thinking of you. Take care and know that you both are loved by many.🙏🏾💜❤️🥲
