Dear Debbie, Jeannie, Michael, Christine, Karen and families: I am very sad to hear of John's passing. My fondest memory of John was his love for his family. He was happiest just being a wonderful husband, great dad aand loving grandpa. My heart is heavy for all of you as his death leaves a huge hole in your family. John had a great smile which is how I will remember him. With my deepest sympathy, Michele Corradino-Sands
