Letter: Grateful for good friends

With heartfelt gratitude, I wish to thank all the wonderful people who honored the life of my Johnny by contributing to and attending his celebration of life on July 24. To daughters Julie and Rebecca; sons Charles, Richard and Jonathan and their spouses; and grandchildren Ashley, Davis, Vivian and Alek for helping set up tables, chairs, pictures, artistic displays of his work, food, drinks and cleanup afterward, thank you.

To Nancy Boothe, Ann Spencer, Linda Clark, Maren Schuster, Maurine Fitzpatrick, Debbie Kelly, Iris McFarlin, Judy Colby, Jan Carney, Ann Stewart, Peppy Dallenbach, Alice Fordyce, Fran Pratt, Marilyn LaMorte, Mary Robertson and Ann Halliday (if I forgot someone, I apologize) for organizing and contributing tables, chairs, appetizers, salads and desserts, thank you.

To all who came to share in his memory, a great big thank you. John lives on through the beauty of his work. Thanks for being his friend!

Sandra Lorton
