Marlene and Mark I was so sorry to hear of John’s passing. He was such a wonderful person, they do not make gentlemen like him anymore. I loved all the stories he would tell me about my family, and growing up in Provident. He was always like a grandparent in the stands cheering me on when I played basketball in school. John will be deeply missed by many.

Mark, I was so sorry to hear about your father’s passing. He was a very nice man, a gentleman. My mother always liked to talk to him when she shopped at Riesbeck’s. Let me know if I can do anything for you or if you want to talk. It’s hard losing a parent, especially when you’re an only child like us.
