To a great Marine who will be missed by all. He helped so many veterans over the years and was always there with a helping hand. Semper Fi.

John was a very proud Marine, WW2 and Korean veteran. He helped many veterans. Over the years I enjoyed his friendship. We shared many a lunch and phone conversations.

Semper Fi John you will be sorely missed.

My Dear Mrs. Essex:
Please accept my sympathy at this time of your sorrow.
Please be assured of the hope of the resurrection.
Saint Paul said in the book of Acts 24:15
"There is going to be a resurrection."
As Martha told Jesus I know he will rise again.
Jesus replied "I am the resurrection and the life."
We can be assured of his words. I'm longing to see him again without pain or sickness.
Love you,
