    Please accept our heartfelt condolence on the loss of Uncle John….

    Sharing our lives over the years with your family ‘n the Bartel’s has granted us such a wondrous opportunity to spend quality time with Uncle John.

    Even with the passing of time every time I saw Uncle John ‘n Auntie Gladys they always greeted us with the world’s best hugs ‘n smiles. Truly a remarkable couple.

    We will miss you Uncle John…
