Condolence & Memory Journal

I had the pleasure of meeting and working with John at AJ's Antiques in Avalon, New Jersey. We shared an interest in reading and he often recommended books for me that he thought I would enjoy. R.I.P.

John was a cherished friend who had much wisdom, humility and a dry sense of humor. He delighted in visiting the Philadelphia museum of fine art on many occasions. His love and respect of elder relatives left a lasting impression from an early age. We often discussed this topic extensively .
John traveled to Ireland, both coasts in America, and spots in Maryland and Lancaster county to visit Amish communities.
He loved to walk the woods and beaches, either deep in concentration alone, or with a friend for intriguing conversation.
Friend, you will be thought of often and will be missed sorely. But, we will meet again on God's time line.
