To Brad, Jeff, and Becky,
We were saddened to hear of John's passing and pray that God will comfort you all and give you peace. We remember being backyard neighbors for a period of time and remember you playing together with our kids and being school friends. I recall neighborhood coffees with Judy and conversations in the back yards. May the words of Jesus comfort you: "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give you...Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid." John 14:27
With prayers,
Fred and Carmen Schwenk

For the Family of John and Judy. I was sad to read of Johns passing. However: my memory was jogged about all the good times we had over the years. Playing cards at one house or the other, especially when Becky was about knee high and would crawel up on her mothers lap to help her play. AlWe enjoyed many fine meals together, at home and dining out. We also had good times when we attended dances and other occasions. I'm certain God has assigned your parents to watch over all of you for the rest of your lives. please accept my condolences. Sheldon Rutherford
P.S.; I can't see very well so if there are mistakes, please excuse them. SLR
