John was one of the loveliest human beings ever. I haven't seen him since high school, except once when we crossed paths on the UC Berkley campus. RIP John Nancy XO

John was my favorite patient and it was such an honor to get to know. I am so grateful to have met him. Kelly, you are a rock and were an amazing advocate for John. I know John is at peace and looking down on you all and he is so proud. Hugs to you all as you are learning to live without John by your side. He did give the best hugs! Blessings to you all.

We feel blessed to have had John in our lives, thanks to his marriage to our sister Kelly. John was definitely his own person, leaving us with many memories of his humor, character and passion. This photo represents one of those unique, specific passions... Cafe Du Mondo coffee (and always makes us smile). We will miss him greatly, but his impression will remain with us forever! Love and prayers to the Reilly family.

Dear Kelly, Dana and I would like to extend our deepest condolences to you, Melanie and Johnny. I will always cherish this picture, as it was a pleasure to spend time with JR in May at the Morgan estate in Los Altos Hills. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to meet JR through his good friend Roo. He joined our Saturday morning running group at Rancho San Antonio. It was my pleasure when he called me and asked me to help him network and get some business contacts at Adobe. It was a reflection of his strong skill set for Sales. The bonus was that I got to be friends with you too. Also, when I needed advice he was there for me. He was such a good person and a great listener. I am so sorry for your loss. Hugs, Dana and Elyce

Also, I can’t help but post the beautiful Christmas card from many years ago. I loved the fact that you told me that it was RJ’s idea to include both of your ages along with the kids. JR said, “People are curious. They want to know how old we are too” I can just hear him saying that to you Kelly. Again, please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of JR. xoxo Elyce & Dana
