I'm so sorry to hear this news. I will never forget John taking my wedding photos and how proud I was of his work. He was always so gentle and kind. Always finding me and talking to me; I knew he was really listening. Later we had an opportunity to work on ancestry together and we spent a summer emailing names and research. He was such a kind person, I am so sorry to hear this. Prayers with Lindsey and Kevin and Melody...love you all. John and Anna Catterson Kaleb, Rose and Logan
