Dear Phyllis - I am so sorry to hear that John has passed away. I am thankful to have had a chat with him on the phone a couple of weeks ago while he was in the hospital. We were classmates and Masonic brothers for more than 50 years - and both were organists in our Lodges, as well as both having been classmates who graduated from Chatham High School - memories of which we spoke. John will be missed by many. Please extend my condolences to the rest of the family, Phyllis. Thanks.
