    So sorry to hear about John. We were one of his customers with Little Pine Landscaping. John was so particular about his work and really went above and beyond to please his customers. There are 3 stepping stones that he suggested we put in leading to our porch. I have always liked them and they will always remind me John.

    Josh, Ann, Cathy, Jim, Jeff and Gary. I know how close you all are, so John’s passing is most surely a tremendous loss. Please know that I am thinking of you and pray that God will comfort you at this sad time.
