    To the family of John,

    I met John when he used to come in and do his banking at Westminster Savings. He would walk I’m the door and all us women would be calling our hello’s to him . He used to bring a Starbucks card in from time to time to treat us all , believe me, we really , really appreciated his thoughtfulness and kindness. He was a wonderful ,lovely man. My deepest sympathies to John’s loved ones. He made a difference. Shine on , John.
