I'm sending my deepest sympathy to wife Elaine and her family. I met both John and Elaine a few years ago at a local dinner. They both took me under their wings at a time when I needed it. I went with them on day trips to the casinos and always had a great time. The love they had for each other was always present no matter what they did. Prayers and love going out to Elaine and her family . Hugs and love❤❤❤❤
