A wonderful day seeing you with the Lowe’s muscular dystrophy turtle. Your smile is priceless.

You were my favorite customer at runnings I will miss that smile and all sweet words you use to tell me. I will always remember all the stories you use to tell me and all the times you lost your wife in the store and we would walk around and look for her

Dear Carole,

I'm so sorry to hear of John's passing. He was so good to me always shoveling to keep me upright in the winter. He was always so kind & thoughtful.
If I can be of help in any way, please email me.

God bless,

{{hugs}}, thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I’m sorry for your loss. John will never be forgotten. During the 20 years I have been the luckiest girl in the world. Not only on happy days and sad days John always knew how to share his jokes and make all of those days so much better. He will always be loved and never forgotten. Love you always.
