    I just heard about John and I’m so sorry! He was such a sweet man, always thinking of others. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help.

    Andrew and I were so blessed to have been able to see, hug, and laugh with Uncle John at our wedding. I have such fond memories of “growing up Majestic” and being able to spend many days with Uncle John, Auntie Paul and our families; whether it was watching (and listening to) the adults play cards, family gatherings, or simple suppers at our house; wonderful, wonderful memories. I think back to those now, and wonder where all of those years have gone. Our deepest condolences to the entire family. Andrew, Rebecca (Majestic), Tino, Tony, & Brita
