A special thank you for the care from Lower Columbia Hospice — Lucinda, and all others who came in time of need, John’s buddies from AA (you know who you are) … and, of course, “John’s Pit Crew,” Maria, Margaret, Liz and his two sons, Severin and Leif.
If you feel led to donate in John’s name, he would like it to go to Grace Episcopal Church in Astoria, Oregon.
