My deepest sympathy to you, Darlene and
John and I started our working days
together at Red Owl when John learned his
skills at butchering. Although we were l6,
we still worked hard, but teased one
another A LOT! I remember John for his
magnificent talent in playing the
piano. 'Lizard' was the name John coined
for me and seeing him several years ago,
that was still my name to him. We will
miss John so very much at our upcoming 50th.

Elizabeth Vonderharr
My sincere sympathy to you, Darlene and
family. John and I worked and laughed
together for 2 years at Maple Lake Red Owl.
What fun and to top it off, John started
his butchering skills. We both loved to
take the truck and deliver groceries. John
coined 'Lizard' for me and last time I saw
him, that was still my name. We will so
miss John at our 50th class reunion this
summer. John is and always will be special
to me. Always, 'Lizard'

Elizabeth Vonderharr
Darlene and Family,

It's the day before John's birthday and
just wanted you to know that I'm thinking
of John and you on this special day.
Elizabeth (Liz) Sexton-Vonderharr
