I work as a Volunteer at the Pacemaker Clinic held at the Guelph YMCA for St. Mary's Hospital in Kitchener. Immediately I was inspired by John's wonderful smile and warm welcome. We met several times at the Clinic and I truly loved his gentle, quiet humour and sincere manner and so looked forward to his visits. I will miss him - he was a treasure.
