As John's older and only brother, I can attest to the need for him to relate this story. He approached the story in such an honest an open manner, I originally had qualms about his effort, but the output of his story is a rendering of his and our love for our father, and I don't believe the story could be told in any manner but the one he has used, open, blunt, honest and with a love that is so evident. Not an easy write, to let your soul and feelings out. He has done a very good job in condensing so many feelings into this book. I commend him and love him.
