Judi, John's sister has sent a copy of his obituary to be posted for all his on line friends. It includes the Church and address for anyone planning to attend the memorial services January 23 at 1:00pm. The family realizes there is so much love out there for John... Many who can't attend but are mourning his loss and would be there if they could... Just know that each and everyone of you added to the smiles we so often saw upon his face and created warm wonderful memories in his heart as we have many to carry with us. I am asking Cherie and Gary, our Gator to post this as well as they come in contact with friends I do not.
The post are so beautiful and such a tribute to John and I will let the family know of the plans for John's Birthday as well. God Bless each and everyone of you. You are all such special friends.
John Edward Oliveria
