  1. RIP, John! I have been trying to get a hold of you for awhile. I guess I know where you are now. I’m right behind you. I have terminal pulmonary fibrosis and have had it for a long time. ‘Til we meet again, I’ll remember the fun we had! –Mouse

    • I’m so sorry you couldn’t reach him. I looked for you for him for a little while. I wish you could be here and I’m very thankful for your kind words. Please take care, Mouse. Candice

      • Thanks, Candice. I thought it would be great to have a chat with him before I left the planet! I still have the memories of the fun we had. –Mouse
