I started to write a message, but accidentally got it entered. I just wanted Ann to know what a good wife and mother she has been and taken such good care of Jon. God bless you all as you go through this time.

I have so many great childhood memories hanging out with Jon. From Boy Scouts to our "Hillsdale Gang" we were always having fun on some adventure and Jon was always a big part.
He always had a kind word for for everyone and treated everyone fairly.
It was my good fortune to have counted him as a friend.
My condolences to Ann and their children.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Ann and her family. I grew up with your husband and father in Hillsdale and we "played" together when we were little. Jon graduated with me in the class of 78 at Riverdale. Please know you are all in my thoughts.
