  1. I just heard the sad news of John’s passing. I had many good memories of working with him at Woods. My prayers are with you and Beth

    • Liz- I am so sorry that I did not know Johnny had passed until this morning. I would certainly have attended the services. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.
