Walter, John Thomas's Guestbook

We were truly saddened to hear of John"s passing. Remembering times of us at Liberty Distribution Center Hallmark in the old days and of you Marilyn working at Dairy Queen even before that. Those were some fun times in our youth. We've known each other for many years. May God give you peace and love. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Rick and Isabelle Hutson

May God comfort you at this sad time of life. You are being thought of and prayed for today!
