It is during times of great loss that we realize how limiting words can be and how special our neighbors are. John A. Trumble was a great friend that did mean so much to us. When things got happy or tough he understood and landed a hand. There was nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting! His friendship is the most valuable gift we could ever hope for.

Near our business is a historic home where John, his beautiful wife Charlot and children have built a Photography Studio. We took many family and business pictures by them. Now, there is no photos displayed in the window, but only precious memories are all we have left of our dear neighbor John gone to rest. His loving voice, his caring and his smile surrounds us.

No smile is so beautiful as the one who struggles through tears now looking at the City Christmas placed on his property this year. He will always be remembered as a man with faith(his father build the original Saint Cecilia Catholic Church and he did the new one as well), respectable, proud veteran, a great father to all(he took a time to teach our son Andrew how to boat and fish on his boat, and he cared about his well being when he came from war in Iraq too), and always seemed so happy and full of life.

We will miss John so very much.
