Dear Clara,

My mom told me about John’s passing today. I know that little can be said accept that we are sorry for your loss and hope there is comfort around you in family and friends at this difficult time. Even though I am many miles away and have been for years I have many memories of John and my Dad chatting across the alley for one reason or another, sharing time and help and perhaps a cold drink as neighbors do in Lansing. John was a good and well liked man. I’m sure he’ll be remembered by all at his healthiest and best.

You and John will be in our prayers.

Chris Zann and family
