    Everybody and I mean everybody I met said what a wonderful service you me John and Stephen conducted for John's farewell. As you may have known I was able to talk to John about his funeral and what he would like in it, hymn's, choir, location and burial, and we were able to include everything he wished. We were just the administrators of John's wishes and we all did a very good job. And a very big thank-you to you for all your help in making sure everything went according to plan.
