Lately I have been searching for people I knew and who I knew when I was a teenager, and John lived across the street from me on Queen St., Durham, NC. when we were very young. I have often wondered what happened to him and happy to learn he married and has a wonderful family. I marred twice and have one daughter now 46. Just wanted to let your family know I am very sorry to hear of his death even thought it’s over 2 years.

When I lived on Queen St., Durham, NC, John and his family lived directly across the street from me. I will not say John and I were ever a couple, but we did hang out and went to a movie or two. I am so very sorry to hear of his death and all his family has my deepest regards. As I remember, after John and his family moved, we dd not keep in touch, which I now regret. I sincerely hope the family is ok. If anyone would like to contact me, please do.
