I had the great honor, albeit for a short while, to know and experience his gentleness and warmth. A beautiful soul. My deep condolences to all the Tornbergs.

If a person can be judged by their children, than John was a top notch person. Karen, my thoughts and love go out to you and your family in your time of grief.
