“I've known John for a very long time... have been friend's with Mary for 40 plus years. My heart is happy for John - he's had a rough go of it but what fun he was when we gathered together! We had his 70th birthday party at my house - we shared a lot of Nevada history and he knew so much about Nevada's history and loved to share it. I know his mom and dad are very happy to see him again - and Bill too. Prayers to Mary, Steve and family! Love you all!”
