I went to school with John from the first grade. He was a devil boy -- meaning full of life and always ready to tease the girls. Funny, full spirited and always fun to hang with. I'm sorry to hear that he passed away so young. Does anyone know what happened to my old friend? Accident or Illness?

Rest in peace John, my good neighbor and such a big part of the gang on Niagara Avenue!
