Dear Ann and Blakney Family,

My heartfelt condolences on your loss. Johnathan was a wonderfully kind and generous friend. Memories of him will be a blessing to us all. Sharon, know that I am thinking of you at this time of grief. Johnathan’s passing has brought a flood of precious memories. Art, I think of our trip to Longview, Texas in a Ford Anglia. Johnathan had such a dry sense of humor. Oh, how we laughed.
