    I am so sorry to learn of John's passing. Didn't know him except for buying a car from him but he was so nice to me. He saw the palms, made into crosses, which I 'd placed behind my visor and he said it reminded him of his mom. Rest in peace John

    You have been a very good friend and will be missed very much! First you and your family did all the flowers for our wedding in 2001 and then you sold us all of our cars since we got married. We will surely miss you! May God be with your family.
