  4. Although I’ve been gone for 49 years and never got to know you all personally, I have clear and fun memories of my brother, Geoff, and I playing with Johnny and Sandy at the Fair Farm, and at the earlier reunions when we pack of hooligans vs the Canton cousins was the event of the day for the under 12’s. My prayers for comfort and peaceful transition are offered for you all. The picture of John shows such a sweet countenance. God is good.
