Abbey, Michael, Steven and Daniel,
I am so sorry to hear of John's passing. He truly was one of my favorite patients and I absolutely adored him. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I just saw this obituary today, otherwise I would have happily attended his services. It's funny, I was just thinking of him Sunday. Xo Kim
