    I am so grateful to have known John for his boundless kindness and compassion even when life was difficult. Together with Marie they shared love, laughter and music with everyone who entered their home. My husband, Bob and I received a special treat when they provided music and song for our wedding ceremony and reception. Never forgotten, John!

    I am so incredibly sorry to hear that John has passed. He was the most gentle and genuine man. He had a wonderful sense of humor, singing voice and was totally devoted to his family, especially his beautiful wife, Marie. We so loved having them both at Dynamic Physical Therapy. My most heartfelt condolences go out to you all.
