  3. Dear lovedones of John,
    I want to offer my sincere condolences on the passing John.
    I have only known John as an acquaintance through the British Home Child movement. I wish I lived closer so we could have chatted more.
    I will light a candle here in Ontario while his service is being conducted on Friday.
    I will hold John in my thoughts and talks regarding BHC.

  5. Billie, and family: I met John though the British Home Child search. John was both a gentleman, and a friend. We had many good heart to heart talks, and I sure am going to miss him,plus he will be missed by many others as well. Our gatherings and presentations will not be the same without him. He is gone, but surely never forgotten. Rest in Peace dear John, you have fought a good fight.

    May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
    May hope forever wipe away your tears,
    And, above all, may silence make you strong.”
