John was a good hearted soul who lived his beliefs, not many can do that in today's world, I admired him for it. His mission of spreading forgiveness was an honorable one that touched and helped heal many lives.
I'll miss his visits, our wonderful conversations, and his unique perspectives.

Sincerest Sympathies to the Connell Family.
Jack was truly one of the most genuine human beings on the planet.
So saddened to hear of his passing.
I often think of him when hearing the words "to be a rock and not to roll"
when I hear Stairway to Heaven.
