    Dear Jen, It is Wednesday morning and the Crooked Creakers and I will be playing golf soon. For so many years John was always such a big part of that. You could always count on a joke from John. We will surely miss him. He was a great guy. Please let me know if I can help you in any way. In Sympathy, Joe & Norma
