From: George and Mona Planiden
Relation: Cousin

We are so sorry to hear about your loss of John. As cousins we grew up together and John was always willing to take part and help out in whatever adventures we would find ourselves in growing up. John had a gentle soul and I never recall him saying a harsh word about anyone. He had a quiet way about him, as did his father and his father’s father before him. Quietness and confidence was his strength and he was all that and more. We will miss him. Rest in peace, dear cousin.
