John and his family
This is the only photo
I have a John and Judy. I'm not sure where it came from but I think
Bill may have sent it to Mom and Dad and she forwarded it to me.
According to information I found on the web, John was a 1989 graduate
of St. Scholastica College
They are both gone, now. I wish I didn't have to start with the ending
... But I might as well get it out of the way. John's obit is below and I just recently found
Judy's obit online (posted under John's) while searching for info about my grandfather.
