    My dear brother, John. How I miss you already. You were such a great older brother as we laughed along the years, discussed our travels, talked about the people we met, the things we did. You were an awesome Uncle to Max - and all those political discussions you two had! May you now be at peace and whole again. I love you and miss you so much.

    Dear John, you will be truly missed. How fortunate we were to have a charming, kind, generous brother. Memories of laughter and "zivio" will always invoke a smile. Rest in eternal peace, brother and friend.
