I had the honor of being a passenger on the flight that brought John home. Although I did not know him, my heart is heavy with sorrow for this brave young man that served our country. Prior to take off, an announcement was made by the pilot that a fallen sailor was returning home to his family. There was a moment of silence for John prior to take off. Upon our arrival to BWI, the water cannon salute and the ceremony that followed is an experience that I will remember always. As John was greeted by his fellow sailors and family, everyone held their hands over their hearts, not a dry eye was seen. My heart breaks for your loss. I have and will continue to keep your family in prayer for pea...ce and comfort.Read more

I did not know John however I had a layover in Baltimore where there was a procession carrying John from the Airplane to the hurse. There was an announcement introducing and honoring John that concluded with everyone present standing up and putting their hand over their heart in respect to John. This was a crowd comprised of complete strangers of all different races & backgrounds offering their respect to John. I was moved by this and wanted to make sure you knew your son was honored in this way. I offer my condolences to your family and pray for healing in the time to come.

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. My memories of John include eating soup with oyster crackers when having a play date with my boys. I envision him dancing along with our animated Halloween skeleton to the tune" super freak". And how he once told the boys that his Dad had said that if a person were lost in the woods, they could eat ants for protein. The St. Louis school principal told me later that the librarian was concerned when she noticed them eating ants in the. courtyard. Such a sweet, loving, intelligent little man is how I will forever remember John. May he Rest In Peace. My heart and prayers are with your family.
