  • To Betty and all the family: I was shocked and saddened to read of John’s death. Of course I hadn’t seen or heard anything of him for more years than I’d like to think, so I have no idea whether it was expected or not, but certainly for me it was unexpected. He was a good man, a good client, a good friend, and I consider it my good fortune to have known him and through him all of you. Take care of one another and if there is anything at all I can do, please let me know.
