Uncle John:

I was floored when I found out last night that it was time for you to look down upon us. You always taught me as a 'lil city boy how to have fun in the country like catching frogs in the middle of the night to fishing out Grandpa's pond to playing lawn darts and ultimately how to play poker.
I will always have those memories and I'll never forget when you introduced me to "the girls" (wall to wall to wall floor to ceiling coverage of sunshine girls) I have never seen anything ever remotely close to that anywhere else in my life.
You always told me to be myself and not to be what everyone wants me to be and that it is ok if people label you a black sheep, but to always remember it's not your fault people don't like you for you because we are all unique.
You are and always will be unique. until we meet again Uncle John.

Love you always

Your favorite Nephew always Lee Kachadoorian

My last interaction with him was only a few weeks ago (and a really good one!!) at the cottage. He was helping me build Mackenzie's Christmas gift. We had so many great laughs as he made fun of the fact that I wanted to use a saw (I am much better with scissors and paper!). He helped me pick out wood for the perfect tree house for our girl. He gave ideas and suggestions and we made great MEMORIES. My last and final memory of him is so good that it aches my heart that we wont get to create more. He LOVED my children so much, seeing them laugh made him smile. He was such a proud uncle - he wouldn't stop telling me how beautiful my family is and how I'm a great mom. He had so much love to give and I am beyond grateful to have had the time we did - no matter how short it was. Our moments shared will be cherished.
Uncle John, we will miss you so much. When Mackenzie opens her DIY tree house on Christmas morning know that we will be remembering you and your high pitch laugh, your smile from ear to ear and your stroke of your long lushes locks that you LOVED so much ha! And if the tree house falls apart... I'm blaming you and your design skills!! LOL I love you always.

Dearest John.

My heart breaks to have you leave us too soon. I was glad to wish you Happy Birthday this year on your special day. We had said we would get together soon after COVID-19. You were so happy that day. That visit never got a chance to happen. I have missed you so dearly over the years and have many fond memories of our childhood. The snowmobile trails, the school bus rides and of course the sibling rivalry. Life events tore us apart. The passing of our beloved mom, me leaving home way to young and the accident that left you forever changed. Life has not been kind. It has given us many heavy crosses to bear. You are with our dear mom now. You were her first boy, her special boy. Like all of us, you have missed her so much. She will comfort you again. Rest now my dear brother.
