You are in my thoughts and prayers. Susan CampbellDearest Pat, Lucas, Tabitha, Carol Pailey, David Sebastino & families, I regret that I cannot be there in person. I am missing John even more, now that I've had time to think about the fond memories of our youth. John's legacy, to me, was his kind, generous, and gentle spirit. He was my cousin, a good friend, and my mentor. He has always made himself available to the family and in so doing, he became my brother. His presence will be missed. His laughter was as deep as his generous sole. I will miss him. I cannot find the words to say that will comfort you at this time. I trust that John is smiling upon you and that he is blessing you from a very holy place. I shall keep him in my heart and I shall send my prayers to you and your families. John! Until we meet again??. I love you brother! Love to all David Hickox, Lena, Lindsay & Connie
