Dear Berna:
My Dad was deeply saddened by the news about the death of Johnny. He is so deeply sorry. Please know that you are in his thoughts and his prayers.
Johnny was such a kind soul, who will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Johnny was always welcome at our home and our parents enjoyed his visits. Dad said that Johnny was a very hard-working young man and would do whatever was asked of him. Planting and harvesting the crops, feeding, and tending to the livestock, milking cows, and operating the farm machinery. “There was always lots to do on the farm and Johnny was always eager to help.”
We know how much you will miss John, but please take comfort and strength from the wonderful life you and he had together. I know your love will get you through this difficult time.
May God bless you and your family during this time and always,
Paul Wowk
Darlene, Phylis, Danny, Dwayne and Jackie and families
