John Jr. , Christine, & Family,
We are very sorry to hear about John. He will forever hold a special spot in our hearts and we will miss him. We were very blessed to have such a wonderful friend we enjoyed talking with, cutting wood with, and sharing stories with. He was always there for us when we needed him and willing to help us in any way he could. Even though we could not be there today, we want to let you know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Sincerely,
Bridget & Mike Hallas
