I was saddened to hear of my cousin John’s passing. We were close in age growing up and I have fond memories of the time we spent together as children and young adults. Over the years I have thought often of his warmth and kind soul. To his loving partner and friends on the west coast — may you find some solace in your memories of John. — Lori Catallozzi
