John, today we heard that you'd left this world. Life will be different for us now in Wood-end; we will miss the conversations over the fence, the sight of you walking your beloved Ruby. It is rare to have such a good person as a neighbour, kind, gentle always a ready smile. We will miss you! Jenni please accept our deepest sympathies, yell over the fence any time you need us.
