  5. Hi Carol, I was very sad to hear of John’s passing. In the short time I lived at the apartment building I was really happy to see John on his walks with Ozzie and then have the opportunity for a brief chat. I came to look forward to those talks and John’s smile and zest for life. Please accept my condolences at this difficult time.
