  1. Wylene, Emily and Jessica,
    Our sympathies and prayers go out to you in the death of your dearly loved one! John was so caring of all of his “patients” and always had a joke to tell when you picked up your meds!
    Please know we’ll be thinking about each of you in the next few days and months ahead!

  2. John was the best! I always enjoyed how he took time for his customers at CVS. During a break, he took time to teach me how to tie my new bow tie. He would make you feel like you were important and he was definitely the friendliest pharmacist of any of the places that I have been. John would take the effort to get to know you and your family…John, you were the best! See you in Heaven someday my good friend!

  3. Heartfelt prayers to the family at this time of great loss. We “accidentally” discovered John at CVS 6 years ago when we moved to Edmond. We had known John in Ada many years earlier—–what a blessing! he always went above and beyond. We will miss you John—-and will always remember your wit, and your classy bowties!
    God Bless you all
    Tony and Jana Leddy
