So sorry to hear of your loss! I met John during my tenure at Exhaust Works Plus. I "labeled" him as one of my favorite customers. He was always polite, very knowledgeable, and recognized things for what they were. What a wonderful man! I'm certain God was waiting for him with open arms! God bless you all as you travel through this trying time of acceptance.
