John was a wonderful man with a wicked sense of humor. I met him just over 50 years ago and I am so thankful that I got to know him. He seemed to be an "undercover" angel so I'm sure he will fit right in in Heaven. I believe God places people in our lives at just the right time, and I believe John and Ruth met at the perfect moment for them. I'll think of John whenever I see beagles and will toast him with the bubbly he used at our wedding toast. Asti Spumonti was the celebratory beverage, I raise a glass to you John and will miss you forever.
