  1. Our heartfelt prayers go out to Kathy and family. We had just moved to Amarillo when I had to have surgery. John and Kathy, knowing we had no family there, sat with Danny in the waiting room. Will never forget that kind gesture. John was a great teammate at work. So many wonderful memories. God bless and comfort y’all.

  2. Our condolences to your entire family. The Ruffo family always enjoyed visiting and sharing a Blantons with John on his trips to NY. He will be truly missed. Thinking of you all during this difficult time.
