RIP John Spotts
3/31/31 to 1/11/11
You served your country well and they remembered.
Richard, I am very sorry to read about your father-in-law John Spott's passing. These photographs are a thoughtful and touching tribute. You and your family have my deepest sympathies.
Thanks for sharing this. It is often difficult to express how much we owe to our seniors. Old pictures, and the memories they stir are invaluable for putting the world in perspective.
Richard, may I offer my deepest sympathies for your loss. Your tribute is very appropriate.
Honors to your Fallen Hero. Sympathy to you and yours.
It would be an Honor for me to Honor him by reading his name on Memorial Day at our Memorial Day Service.
He will not be Forgotten!
Sorry for your loss Richard. Our deepest sympathies to you and your family.
Thank you all.
@Don - I am sure it would be greatly appreciated.
I forgot to include this link for his obituary.
Charles F Snyder Funeral Home - Obituaries and Tributes
He had 11 heat attacks over the last few years and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 2 months ago. He refused pain medication because when people visited he wanted to be able to give them his full attention. During the service many people said they went to the hospice to comfort him yet it ended up he was the one comforting them.
Sorry for your loss Richard.
Sorry for your loss, Richard. That is amazing that he thought about everyone else first in his last days.
My sympathies for your loss.
Thinking about others was his life. I had a "It's a Wonderful Life" moment during the viewing. I knew he was a really nice guy and was an average food salesman for 39 years, never making a lot of money. I always wondered why he never rose very high in the business. Person after person came up to me who worked with him mentioned how he helped them in their career. He would pass on sales leads and spend time with people teaching and helping them. Time and sales leads he could have spent furthering his own career. He was too nice to step on anybody.
He was one of those people the world would say didn't amount to much. I learned otherwise. I am ashamed I didn't know him better.
Richard, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My deepest sympathies to you and your family.
Please accept my best wishes for you and your family in this loss.
Deep respect for your fallen hero.
Sympathies for your loss and prayers to you and your family. We owe much to your father-in-law's generation.
So sorry to hear of your loss,
My condolences to you and your family.
My sympathies too Richard. Sounds like a good man and a life well lived. That, I believe, will make it easier in the long run, but not much helps in the short run. Thinking of you and your family.
He sounds like someone I would have liked to have known. Sorry for your loss.
Richard, please accept my deepest condolences. I hope your wife is doing ok. Please give her a hug from me.
Here's an idea
When my Mom passed away I created a video montage of her life. I shared it with several family members. They all liked it and several commented that I should have done it while she was alive. I realized, they were right.
I created one for my uncle's 80th B'day and it was a big hit. As photographers we should all try to share such great memories while people are alive so they can enjoy them.
