Bonnie: No one could ask for a finer brother in law. Our family always had so much fun when we got together. John was the life of the party with his great sense of humor and I know that Tara and Eddie always had fun with him. He will be missed. He will be missed by so many friends and family. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs... Terry
