To our friend Lisa ,
I pray you will be ok because everything you did and lived for was John our whole family loved how you cared for John. We loved his smile and I loved when you told me he was the one who rescued my mom after her fall. Right then I knew he was an amazing guy. He was sweet for you and for life . Remember the good times and that how he loved you and was grateful for you being there for him. My kids always think your amazing as do Pedro and I do as well. God bless to his children and the little ones who he loved so much. Fly high John watch over Lisa and all of us. Say hi to my mom if you see here. Thank you ♥️
