We feel so privileged to have known John for the past 10 years. We met him as he was our pharmacist. John was always friendly and helpful and just an all around great person. We are shocked and saddened at his passing. Our hearts go out to John's family and co-workers and friends. We are so sorry
for your loss of this fine, kind, caring man.

John has been our pharmacist for many years. He almost always shared a joke with me every time I picked up a script. I always enjoyed visiting with him at CVS or occasionally at the Bagel Shop. He was a class act and we are going to miss him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family.
