    I had the great pleasure of knowing John and working with him on many projects over the years. He always cared more for his family and those in need, than he ever cared for himself. His contribution to the creation and operation of Share Food Share Love Food Pantry was enormous and in some respects, unquantifiable. We thank him for his generosity and dedication and thank his family for sharing him with us.
