I went to Ephrata High School with John, graduated in 1974. My neighbor in Akron was Bruce Snavely, a friend of John's. John was a someone I lost track of, often asking others if they knew where he was. Life happens, and your paths no longer cross yet you wonder how their life unfolded, where are they, and are they happy. John was one of those people to me, one I would have loved to see again to smile with and share a laugh - "Johnnie Rem" as I referred to him. In our teens, both of us had convertible MG's, his white and an MGB, mine a Midget in a citron color. Ah, the freedom. Everyone should own a convertible sports car in their youth. I remember the sound of his MGB cruising by growling like a panther. In a small town, their were few tennis courts. It wasn't uncommon that we periodically saw each other there, John playing with Bruce, I with my friend Eileen Lesher. Sometimes we'd play doubles until the sun set on a fair weather day. What I recall most about John was his smile, his chuckle, his kindness and courteous manner. He acted with respect and integrity, even then back in the seventies. I will always remember him with fondness in my heart. For those whose grief is unbearable, he will live on in your heart forever. You will find a way forward. I share with you text from a sympathy card I received that helped me through, and it said this: I will see you again in the meadow, and it will be as if no time has passed. God's Peace Camille Widder Horine P.S Dolores, I love the FB picture of you and John dancing. Beautiful. Hug. I
