My heart was so saddened to hear of John's passing. John convinced me to join the Navy and we signed up on the buddy system. After boot camp, I went to the East Coast and John to the West, and our paths never crossed again. It was an experienced that shaped the rest of my life, and I was never able to thank him for that.
