    Dear Susie And Family, I Am So Sorry To Hear About John’S Passing. You Will Remember Me As Karen Sharp, Earl & Nancy’S Daughter (The 2Nd Oldest Of 7). My Uncle Norman King Saw John’S Obituary In The Wheeling Newspaper And Called Me To Let Me Know The News. I Am Deeply Saddened For Your Family And Share Your Grief As I, Too, Lost My Father Back In October. I’M Not Sure If You Heard The News, But Wanted To Let You Know. I Will Always Remember John As A Great Friend To My Dad. They Did A Lot Of Work Together Back In The Days When We Lived In Charleston. My Thoughts And Prayers Are With You All During This Difficult Time.
