You are in my thoughts and prayers. May God provide strength, comfort, and surround you all with his love.
Kathy, Patti, and family,
John was a good person. I am hoping he and Bob Chappuis are having a good time together right now in Heaven. I remember that they started at IBM on the same day. I know how strong your family's faith was with things like Teams of Our Lady, and I know John was respected at IBM. My son-in-law works for Robert, and I am not surprised that he is also respected by his employees. It was a gift to know John, and I am truly sorry for your loss.
Dearest Kathy & Bondy Family:
We got to know John & Kathy when we became a member of TOOL about 15 years ago. It was evident they were devoted & soul-mates to each other that shared a deep love for their God & Family!! They left a deep impression on us & to how they navigated the highs & lows of life right up til John left his earthly life. Patty …what a beautiful gift of love you demonstrated the last few years by being there for mom & dad in any way they needed you!! Bless You & Tim!! We will keep you all close with warm thoughts & prayers as we prepare to celebrate John’s earthly life.

Our love and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Roger and I were blessed to have spent such a pleasant evening with Uncle John and Aunt Kath during our recent trip to Minnesota. I will always treasure the memories of our camping trips together and pig roasts. May the peace Christ be with and your families.
