  7. Sending our deepest sympathies to Sue and the family. John was always a kind man and we enjoyed our conversations about farming and the weather and appreciated how he always made a point of saying hi . We will never forget the time he told us the funny “vinegar” story, and how he got his nickname. He was a man of faith and we know he is now resting in peace. God bless all of you.
