    My prayers are with John and his family. I’m so sad and sorry to hear about John’s passing. I know the Connors from when they lived in California. At the time their two young children Jackie and John participated in the children’s choir that I was a part of. John was a giving man with a huge heart, a man you could look up to and a man of God. My condolences to the family, especially to Jackie.
