    John and I were good friends! I moved out of town and didn’t see him for years. I moved to Amherst 8 years ago and seen him in a parking lot and we had a great conversation. He was a good man who wanna be a good friend to the people he cared about!! Friend you and I had some memories!! The 1 thing I remember is I got johns mom to rap and we laughed about for days . She was pretty good at it lol. You will be missed!!!! My condolences to the whole family!!! Love you brother!!!
