Sergio S left a message on July 10, 2017:
My very first day at Skokie I was greeted with open arms by John and Edna. The warm embrace made me feel right at home and knew that I had made the right desicion. John was always there to help others and give a gentle hand to all who needed it. No task was too small or too large for John. I will never forget him and I am truly blessed to have had the pleasure of working with him for many years at Skokie Hospital. As he took me under his watchful eye on my first day I can guarantee that he is up in heaven welcoming others and taken them under his wings. God bless you John and thank you for watching out for me. You will be missed dearly. My heartfelt sympathies to the Witte family
