My deepest sympathy to your family. John was one of my favorites at Conemaugh Hospital Oncology. I will always remember his love for cherry lollipops, and our hearty laughing when I gave him the pacifier lollipop : ) He had the best laugh!

I will keep your loving family in my prayers. God's blessings.
