    I am so sorry for your loss. I met John a few times though out the yrs. But felt I knew him better by the stories my dad (Buster) always told of the two of them. He was a very good friend to my dad I am glad they had that friendship. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. God bless u all. The Quick Family
