Uncle John, (The greatest uncle in the world), You will be greatly missed. You were the best uncle. You always knew how to make all your nieces laugh and showed us all have to have a great time. You were also the best husband to Aunt Helen, and best father to Johnny and Steve. All my love. Rest in peace. Love, Rosemarie
