John and I went to school together.
He lived two streets over from me.
John was nicknamed " RABBIT"
He LOVED soccer and also participated in basketball and chess.
There is a scholarship at out High School in memory of John.....he is not forgotten.
I was very touched when my son asked if I would order a KIA bracelet bearing John's name. He wears it proudly and the fact that he wears John's KIA bracelet even was made evident at his high school graduation.
