Dearest Linda
So sorry to hear of John's passing. I have fond memories of when you and John visited at mom and dad's in Lynden while mom(Alma Stevenson Gibbs) was still alive. I remember the laughter, giggling and good times. I know that even though John may have left this realm he is one of God's chosen and we will meet again. Much love Shelley
