Hi. My name is Robert Lehner and it is with great emotion that I write this letter. I knew John Sr., Jim, John Jr., Kathy, Peggy and their Mom because I went to school with Jim for 8 years. We were all part of the Our Lady of the Rosary Parish community. I grew up riding bikes, playing in the sand lot baseball park by their home, and being an altar boy with Jim. He was and is a good friend. If there is any one I can help mend or heal please let me know. My dad taught with John elder and thought highly of him. This is posted by
