    I went to high school w/John, and worked with him for many years @ Federal Paper Board, Co. John and I were very good friends, and I moved to Charlotte in 1986, but still got to see him occasionally when bringing printing plates to the plant. I just heard of his passing, and would really like to say I will miss him and I'm glad he has such a lovely family. May God Bless Rhonda Childers
