Notes

Note
Just now I am remembering days of the past when my dear nephew John was a young boy. At one time his Mom and Dad lived on a farm out of South Milwaukee. I remember well their “watch-dog” Gander sitting on the front porch. He was ready to attack anyone entering the driveway who wasn’t familiar. Hirsch’s farm was a fun-time place but there always were chores for young John and Roger to do. They also helped a neighbor on his farm gathering in fall produce. Later John worked a short time at this Uncle Bill’s filing station. He was always busy. During hislifetime he did several types of work. His final was laying carpets. That’s a strenuous job but John was full of vim and vigor right up to his last days. I never knew John when he wasn’t working. That was John. I wrote to him some few years ago at Christmas time to let him know how I appreciated his wartime service. A young man, he was sent farfrom home and family to fight a war that others might live as free men. He became a soldier answering the call to help ‘right-a-wrong”. Wars are worse than plagues. Wars are started by some evil men against their fellow man. I recall the time at one of his jobs when he received a bad arm injury. He would have died from loss of blood if a “guardian angel”, a nurse, hadn’t chanced by and came to the rescue. Recently he mentioned that arm bothered him at times from wrist to shoulder,but it sure didn’t keep him from working. All of his life John choseto walk with the Lord. He proved that man can walk through this earthly “vail of tears” respectfully and honorably. His life proved his worth to God and man. Pat, Mark and I were out to dinner with him oneevening in those last days. We were seeing him quite often. Before leaving his front room, we said our goodbyes. Then we stood on his patioandtalked a bit. Then some more goodbyes. On nearing the car, I said, “John, I need one more big hug, because we don’t know what tomorrowwill bring”. I got another hug from his strong arms. We said more goodbyes.2weeks? Maybe 3 weeks later? I don’t just now remember but then he wasgone. I miss him!

When I was a young boy John was my much older cousin, somewhere in between then and now he became my not so much older brother, and I miss him. Whenever the Reese’s would get together John was called because he was a part of the Reese family and we were honored to have him. John had integrity, strength, gentleness, a love of good, a hatred of bad, he was stern, rigid in his beliefs, forgiving of others, funny, loved people, worked hard but was not greedy, a father who loved his sonsand grandchildren, reliable, giving, a great story teller and so muchmore, but above all these things John loved GOD with all his being.Johnserved me jokes, friendship and company along with his banana cream pie and coffee, and I miss him.

John said the Hirsch and Reese cousins were more like brothers and sisters than cousins. I unfortunately came along later than the others, so I missed out on their early years. However, in the past several years I really got to know John and I will miss him a lot. I will always remember his sense of humor and his gift of telling jokes. I love to laugh and no one made me laugh more. You have heard, and will hear this a lot; John was a good man, sensible, honest, a hard worker, was quick to tell good people that they were good people, had a great outlook on life and what this life is all about. Even if I was having the best day ever, after being around John I felt even better! He wouldn’t agree with the view that it doesn’t matter what you believe, as long as you believe in one God, because the rest of that verse says: oneLord, one faith, one baptism. He loved God, held onto the truth, and more importantly, he lived it! I had some of my family over for a Mother’s Day meal this year and asked John if he would like to come. After we prayed, he was rubbing his eyes, and because I had just set a steaming bowl of mashed potatoes in front of his plate, I thought that was why. Then I realized, the potatoes weren’t steaming that much, he was thinking of his Mom and missing her. For dessert, I made strawberry shortcake using biscuits, the way my Mom always made it. Well, he said that is how his Mom ‎(my Aunt Bessie, your grandma)‎ always made it too and he just loved it. I brought some to his house the next time wevisited him and I was so pleased to do a little thing like that for someone who touched my life so much. A little something else I had found out in our time together is that he loved beans. He particularly liked Joan Of Arc kidney beans but was unable to find them anymore. I tucked that bit of information away and decided I would search high andlow leaving no stone unturned until I found them. It was no mission impossible, there they were at Sentry where I shop. So each time I saw him, I had some Joan of Arc canned beans for him. We had our usual gettogether in June when my brother Wayne came to visit from Florida. John, Roger, Cindy, Bob and Charmaine were there too. We were sitting inabig circle of chairs with the guys pretty much on one half of thecircle and the women on the other. I was next to John and so I jumpedfrom conversations with the guys to conversations with the women. The guys started talking about alternatives for car fuel and were discussinga device my brother Mark is working on. Someone, some where in the discussion asked John what was in the bag by his chair. Inside werecans of Joan Of Arc kidney beans. Well, John led the discussion on alternatives for car fuel on a whole new onslaught of ideas. . . I will sayno more!

Our last memories of Uncle John were from two years ago when we were last in town. He was over along with Aunt Cathern and the Reeses. Whata marvelous time we had. Uncle John shared so much family history with us and stories of their growing up days. What a fantastic day that was! We all laughed so hard we hurt. We all laughed so hard we cried. We're thankful that we were able to spend that time with Uncle John and really get to know him. Thank you God for Uncle John!

I had a friend. His name is John. He made me laugh. He was just so full of life. He made me cry, the day he died. He was my friend. We talked about our early days, and how things used to be - and about today'sworld and how different it is in many ways. We laid carpet together. He knew what to do. I just cleaned up after him. What else could I do?We bought plants together. One was called Dictamnus ‎(Gasplant)‎. We laughed. Lemon scented? So we have been waiting for them to grow. Who knew? We ate out together. What stories he would tell! At home his bakedpies and coffee was a nice way to say "HI"! He had 5 boys. I did too!Wetalked about how much we loved them and the funny things they do. In our grandchildren we saw them too. But now God has taken him and that'sOK with me. Because I know there will be pie and coffee waiting forme. To my friend John, from Steve.

My memories of Uncle John began as a little girl. His laugh was infectious. His jokes were "home-made" and oh so silly for little children.When I was young and would stay overnight at his house, while eating dinner, he would tell me: "Eat every carrot and pea on your plate!" Ofcourse, lots of giggles. During the last few years, we had a renewal ofour relationship, spending hours and hours talking ‎(which he loved todo)‎. Instead of taking money payment for a carpet installation, UncleJohn just wanted our company. Several dinners out followed. If you were privileged to really get to know him, he was just full of wonder and awe of God's creations. He was always searching and finding truth and was extrememly interesting to listen to. His values and good workswere something for everyone to take an example from . Uncle John was alwaysthere to help, no matter how bad he felt that day, no matter whatthe cost. The Sunday before he died, I told him that I loved him and his face just lit up. I'm so grateful I had that opportunity.
