Linda, Cindy, Jeff and families: When I heard of John's passing I spent time thinking of when we first met -- I am thinking it was when Jeff and Scott started school together on Logan St. Through the years there were many baseball and football games where we sat together on the sidelines and I have worked with both of you. Time has gone by so quickly and I will miss his smile and good conversations. I have a cold and will not be able to attend any of the services but want you to know that I am so thankful to be a part of your lives and will hold wonderful memories of John and each of you. Love and prayers Dotti Pursel
