    So many great memories through the years; a game of golf, and especially his smile.

  4. Dale Gramley and Dianna (RIP) on July 6th, 2022 7:53 pm

    Lorraine, my heart bleeds for your loss of John. There aren’t enough words to express how much Dianna and I loved him, and you. John, was truly one of a kind. The memories Dianna and I have of John, and you, will be forever etched in my mind. I know Dianna is looking down at you with tears in her eyes. I “talk” to her all the time about who she gets to be reacquainted with in Heaven, I’ve added John to that list. You know they’re talking about bowling as I write this. When things settle down, I’ll give you a call Lorraine. My apology for not being able to go to the showing or Mass tomorrow.

    Dear Lorri, I am so sorry to hear of John’s passing. I always enjoyed John and your company bowling, camping, and all of the stuff we used to do. Thinking of you with love.

    Lorraine, so sorry to hear about John. We worked and bowled and golfed together for many years at Firestone. I enjoyed our time together. John was very dedicated. Had many good times together. He was a very good friend and co-worker, I know he will be missed very much.

    Lorraine, I’m sorry to hear of John’s death. We enjoyed many good times golfing and especially bowling. John was very good to work with and to work for. I am sure his family already misses him.
