I remember cousin Johnny from our visits to Goshen when we were all much younger. He was smart and witty then as he was when I spoke with him last in December. His attitude never changed always uplifting and cheerful. We are very very sorry for your loss. We will miss him and think of him always.

When we all lived up in New York John and Myrna took Stuart and I for a wonderful sailboat ride. It was my first time sailing and I I was curious about the different sails and what their functions were and John happily explained them. He particularly pointed out the Boom and I asked him "why do they call it that" and not long after thatq the Boom came around and hit Stuart and John laughingly said "and that's why they call it the Boom". Stuart and I still laugh about that when we see a sailboat and we quote Uncle John every time. He always always made you laugh!❤❤❤
