Unfortunately John could not attend but fortunately sent this video and some wonderful letters instead. John wrote " ...My 15 year old grand daughter Meagan did all the hard stuff. All I did was stand and deliver. I just wish my voice was a bit clearer. It used to be pretty good some years ago. Then I wish I had a bit more hair. I lost it all, quite suddenly about 5 years ago. I'm too old to worry about those silly things now. Vanity of vanities, the preacher said. All is vanity".
Play the video to your hearts content and then some. Have a laugh! It wont bother me in the slightest. All I am interested in is making a worthwhile contribution to the 70th Birthday celebrations. All celebrations are worth while , they lift the spirit , inspire ideas and do a lot of good..."
Thank You John and family members Meagan , Ron and Maryanne for making such a fantastic video to share with all.
