Our deepest condolences to all of John’s family. We met many years ago when John and Henry were on an adventure to Alaska. They stopped for an overnight stay in our small town of St. Walburg, Saskatchewan, Canada. The restaurant at the motel they were staying at didn’t open until 8am and they wanted to be on the road early so I invited them to my house for coffee and bran muffins at 6am. They arrived bright and early and we had a wonderful visit. They were on their way by 7am with 1/2 dozen muffins for the road. The rest, as they say, is history! Their hospitality when we came to Arkansas to visit was 2nd to none. I’ll never forget our drive to the Mississippi River along the levies and John reminding me that “I didn’t have to drive the speed limit, I could slow down” and me replying “John Clinton, you just hang on and hush!” and Henry and my husband Ted in the back seat giggling because I had talked back to John and no one talks back to John! But we were smiling at each other - we were just having fun! I will miss the phone calls and the visits but most of all I will miss my dear friend and John always ending our phone calls with “you take care now Sugar, we love you. “To live in the hearts and memories of those you leave behind is to live forever.” Love you too John.
