My Uncle John was one of the greatest. I have so many great memories with him. His laugh truly lifted me. One memory... he was watching my younger sister and I while Auntie Darlene was out of town. For a special treat Auntie would make us chocolate milk and she would only let us use two scoops of Nesquick powder. Well this one time Uncle John let us make it ourselves and we put so much Nesquick in our glass of milk it was practically syrup. But he let us have it and it was such a fun secret! I remember how much he loved all of his kids. How he would make jokes with eachother them. How much he loved holding Lizzy, and Lizzy would just fall asleep with ONLY Uncle John. How he told me he was proud of me. He told me I was raising a bright child and that I was doing a good job. And I know he meant it. I will always miss you Uncle John.

So sad today to learn that John has passed. I'm sorry I wasn't aware until now, to have missed the service to celebrate his life. Will and I will miss John very much. We always looked forward to our trips to the coin shop to have John look at whatever we were bringing in, but also to just chat and hear what John would happen to be talking about. I'll never forget him going on about how the city of El Cerrito installed those parking hoops for locking bikes to, and the big cement blocks "to sit on for your enjoyment," that just happen to be in front of his store, as well as several others along San Pablo. He didn't approve, he felt it was a waste of money. I might just have to agree with him on that one, especially the comfortable cement blocks? When Will and I pass those big blocks we often recollect John's discussion of those blocks and laugh with him! I will really miss interacting with John, the kind and fun man that he was, but I'm kind of glad the city installed all of those cement blocks, because I will smile when I see them and think of John in his shop complaining about them, and all of the other fun times we had in visiting John! We also are glad that John once stumbled into one of our sales in this last year, and we enjoyed running into him at Safeway once as well. We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family during this time.
