JJ There are no words that we could say that can express the feeling we are feeling about your passing. We will miss you so very much. Your last words to me were about the trip we took to NC and how precious that was for you and how much it meant to you. You gave me a big hug and kiss with that smile of yours and that is how I will always remember you JJ You are among the Angels now. Please rest in peace JJ. Your loving Auntie Florence and Uncle Carl.

Although I never met you John, I know your brother Michael and I would like to say Thank You for your service, and tell you that if it were not for people like you that sacrifice so much for the rest of us, we wouldn't be enjoying the freedom we now have. R.I.P. John.

Dear Mike and Karen hearing about JJ shook me to my core I can't even begin to imagine the heartbreak that has gripped the two of you as well as the rest of your family. I want to tell you that coaching JJ was one of the best times in all of my years coaching . He was my favorite he always left it all on the field and that was remarkable because he was 8 to 12 years old
