    Living in Venice was special to many of us.
    Some of us arrived later, but many of us grew up there.
    We knew just about everyone, and where they lived. If we didn’t know them then we had a friend who did.
    We all seemed to be one family at times.
    John will be added to our Venice History Memorial List.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
    With Heartfelt Sympathy,
    The Venice History Committee

    Grew up across the street from John and me and my cousin David Hill had many good times with John. It saddens me to know he is gone. My condolences to his family.
