John. Thanks so much for sharing those thoughts. There are some people that we don't have much contact with, but they go above and beyond to touch our hearts. They may not know just how important an effect they have on our lifes, but just a kind word or deed, can make a wonderful memory for us. Seems like this was the type of man. Thanks again.

John Allison (835 3rd Avenue)

Hi John

I used to deliver the Gazette early mornings on Godin from about 62-65. Who knows, maybe he was a customer. God bless him. He'd be about the same age as my parents (who are also gone).

you used to deliver to a few members of my family on that block. You delivered to Unle Clarence and to us at 1273.

Thank you for the kind words John.
