    Margaret, Debbie, & family of John Casey: I have had the pleasure and honor to get to know John over the last 13 months at Christian Park. He and Grandpa Hess were good buds and ate at the same table for their meals for all these months. John was a kind, warm and loving person – always concerned about everyone around him and wanting to help! When he grinned, he actually had a sparkle in his eyes that I know I will miss!! His presence will certainly be missed at C.P., as I know it will be in all of your lives. Rely on your wonderful memories and each other to get you through the long and sad days.
