Condolence: My sincere sympathy to John's family and friends. Pat, as he called himself then, was my first (and possibly only) official date in high school. We went to a movie at the old Franklin Theatre just south of downtown. On the way back, we crossed the bridge over Onondaga Creek; Pat insisted it was tradition to spit in the creek, and he made me do it, much to the chagrin of my Catholic school lady-like sensibilities!
Later, he was the only person at SJBA to own a car and was very generous about picking up fellow students on the way to school in the morning.
I have thought of him often over the years. I'm sorry he suffered, but believe his journey back to God was painless.
Condolence: Joanne and Paul, I am so sorry to learn of John's crossing over, but so happy for him. He was always so nice to me! To say that.....he, as an upper classman.....and me as a lower classman.....in 1962....1965..... says SO much. Love and prayers for all!
Condolence: Dear Joanne and family,
So sorry to hear about the passing of your brother. I remember him well from high school. He was much too young to leave this world but at least he is not suffering. If I was in town I would have stopped by in person.
Condolence: My deepest sympathy for your loss. May you find comfort and strength in God's words at revelations 21:4 which tells us'' he will Wipe out every tear from their eyes ,and death will be no more,''won't that be a wonderful time!!!
