I offer deepest sympathy to Margaret, Kelly and Diane and their families on the loss of a dear husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. Though my cousin John and I met only once in the more than 55 years since he left Belfast in Northern Ireland, we have through the wonders of modern technology maintained our link. John was blessed with a family which brought him joy and a rich appreciation of life. God bless you all. Be glad when you share your memories of a life well lived. John was brave and adventurous and worked hard and loved his family and life. He takes with him his childhood family and memories of a gentler time. R.I.P. He was loved.
