John was a wonderful childhood friend of mine. A smile that would instantly make anyone around him feel better. He was an incredible athlete and one of my favorite teammates. In football practice he would knock me on my backside and then, with that great smile, reach down to help me up. He truly had a Heart Of Gold. We used to ride around in an old Checker cab that he had. John would load up as many friends as he could and then just cruise around having the time of our lives. Sad to say, the world has lost great man.

So sorry to hear about the passing of John. Tim has great memories of working on many projects with John during the Ziolkowski years with all the guys. John was a hard worker and proud of the job he did. Our thoughts and prayers are with you today and the coming days and weeks.

Clive and I send you our love and prayers during this time of mourning John's death. His love will never leave you, and the good news is, John now knows all that we do not. He will be enjoying his heavenly home, having conversations with Jesus and the Saints, and experiencing a heavenly reunion with loved ones.

Today will be a hard one for you, may the Holy Spirit hover over you and yours as you lay to rest your loved one. May he give you peace and comfort and a constant reassurance of His presence.

Denise & Clive
