    Dear Jane and Kenny
    I am so sorry for your loss. I know that John has not been well for many years, but whenever I ran into him – usually at the Stop and Shop – he would try to be upbeat. Please accept my sympathy.
    Sincerely,
    John

    Dear Jane and Ken,
    My sincere condolences to you for the loss of your brother. I will never forget the great time he and I had playing tennis in highschool at Ridge Top. I will always remember his great clarinet playing while in middle and high school. John used to come hear me play piano in area clubs, and I would let him sit in and play some of his great arrangements. John was over the house a few years ago and we would take turns playing our interpretations of jazz standards. John was very gifted and had a temendous harmonic sense. I hope he got the chance to put some of his arrangements on CD for all of his friends to hear.

    Sincerely,
    Charlie Barone
