    I did not know John was a Vietnam Vet. Those were not good years for the nation, nor for those who served, or the family and loved ones they left behind. I too was called to serve and like John ended up in “the Nam”. I know of only a few classmates who got the call, so he belonged to a select group. I honor his service and am saddened by your loss.

  2. Marcia Wilson Borgie says:

    I was very saddened by the news of John’s death. We have lost touch the past several years, but I remember someone who was a terrific Gustie and one who had a terrific voice which he used when he participated in the Choir. I am praying for God’s strength for you as you and your family adjust to a new life. May each day bring a precious memory of John to sustain you. I will also pray for you for the day when a memory of John brings a smile first rather than tears. Shalom…Cindy
