Oh that man and I had an odd relationship. He loved to give me crap, and of course, I always threw it right back at him. Poor Sharon had to deal with us both at times. He would call me regularly to give and get support. We had a lot in common with pain, and knowing how to push each others buttons. On the upside I know he cared and had a brotherly love for me, as I did for him. I will miss his early morning harrassment calls to keep me going strong. Deep down inside of his sarcastic self was a love and proud man of all his kids and grand babies. Always talked about how proud he was.. The Love he had for his wife, Sharon was amazing. He had nothing to say but Good things about her, and He couldn't figure how he got so lucky. I loved that most about him. The love for his family. Rest in peace John. I know you will be around to pick on me just like you promised.❤️❤️❤️
