Hi Cassie,  Mike McVay had sent me a note about John's passing.  I'm so deeply saddened and my thoughts are with you. So glad we had the chance to visit and catch up a bit a couple summers ago. I often think back on all the good times we had as kids on Walnut Street, 10th Avenue and at the Farm with you and Chip.  Take care.

So sorry to hear about John.  The Landers were such a good family and influence on me as a kid growing up on Big Branch. Janie, Marie and Barb were always so good to me. John did not join in the 4-h as much.  always outside since the girls kinda took over.  He was so nice and true product of his parents.  You all have been blessed to have him for so many years.  Keep him in your heart and remember all to good times and teaching he shared.
