  3. Dear Helen:
    It is with very much sadness for you, your family, and me to see John’s photo yesterday in the Herald. We have several photos of you and John when we last visited at the School Reunion in Vermilion. As a former school classmate of a number of years, John was always a smart leader, and I’m sure the same for you and you family, and for all his collogues in the Business World.
    John was always a good friend, and may God have a soft chair for him in Heaven. Sincerely
    carol and henry c

    Dear Helen
    We are very sorry to hear of John’s passing. Our heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I did not see John very often other than our class reunions, but always looked forward to a good conversation when we did meet. I am sorry not to be able to attend the funeral because of a conflicting schedule. Our prayers are with you at this most difficult time.
