It’s so sad to see a good man leave us. Mr John, as I first called him, looked so respectable and as my daughter describes him as like his own legend as the man with the curled white moustache. He believed in man’s equality so much, he said to me John was enough. That meant so much to a little man like me. He always hugged me whenever he saw me and that surely gave me the feeling of belonging to the Knights of Columbus that he loved so dearly.. Rest In Peace, John. For sure, you’re already in your reserved spot with our Lord in heaven. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends . God bless!
