    John joined the Novell SysOp program in 2003 and worked with us for a couple of years. It was a pleasure to spend some time with John and it was sad to learn he had passed away. God bless.

    Cathy, Lynne, John, Mark and Chris,
    I am so sorry to hear about John. I have many memories of him living next door as a teen. The summer he spent painting our house (all summer!) The mop of blond hair and most of all his big grin. He will be sorely missed by many. I send much love and thoughts of comfort at this most difficult time.

    Dearest Kathy,John,Lynne,Chris,Mark and Barbara,
    The sadness of your loss is deeply felt and reaches far beyond your family. We cannot take the pain away but want you to know that we care.
    John was a gentle soul,so full of knowledge and a zest for life. He was a an attentive son and a kind brother. Many years ago, we had dinner together in Sacramento and I was so impressed with his ease of conversation. It was a truly enjoyable evening and gave me the opportunity to reacquaint myself with a truly talented,thoughtful, intelligent man. You were all truly blessed to have John . My life was enriched by getting to know him.

    You are loved,

    Take good care of yourself. I love you.
