  1. Shelly Hume (Taylor) :

    My sincere sympathy to Jay, Karl, Julie, and Myrna and their families. I remember John very well, having spent much time playing with Myrna and hanging around the Thomson house. I think of your family often and wonder how everyone is doing. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time. John was taken far too young. Take Care.
