To Ruth, Stan, and Daniel; To Rita, Vanessa, and Andrea; and to all the Kopp family...we were sorry to hear of John's passing. The last time we saw him it was hard to believe he was in his 90's! We're sure you all have wonderful memories of your times with him. We pray for God's peace and comfort to envelop you at this time. Please know that we love you all and are thinking of you. Much love, Mike & Theresa
