Jo-Ellen Abercrombie

Beatrix & family, I was sorry to hear about John's passing. I remember meeting John at a couple of the Soroptimist Galas that Beatrix was involved in. He seemed like an interesting, supportive man with a twinkle in his eye, one who didn't look his age. I hope your shared memories from happier times will comfort you. My sincere sympathy, Jo-Ellen Abercrombie

Many hugs and prayers
