John had a great smile, an easy laugh, and a way of making everyone around him feel included and special. He was big tease and a big flirt and we all loved him. The first time I saw his name on the Wall, I fell to my knees and wept. I wanted to send his parents a rubbing of his name but I couldn't find them. This is my way to say to them: we have not and we will not forgot who and what John was.
A memorial initiated by a school friend.
John is not the only son, there was a second son, Jimmy. John and Jimmy are cousins of mine, good solid American people. God Bless them.
