There are so many memories of our time with both John and Mary, especially our work on the Men's and Ladies Cornerstone retreats. John was a true friend, a true Knight and a blessed friend of ours for many years. May Our Lord put His arms around Mary and the entire Ryan family and comfort them with His Grace. Andy and Terry Palumbo
