My deepest sympathy to the family of John Bartram. Sadly on September 13, I lost a good friend. The last time I got to visit John was at his house on his farm. He had invited me and my wife along with our daughter and our grandchildren over to see his farm where my wife and her parents had once lived. We reminisced about the history of the farm, cars we had owned in the Past and car parts. We shared together many stories of growing up being next door neighbors and had lots of good laughs. John was always true to his word and his parents raised him with great morals. I will always cherish the memories I have of him and his humor and laughing. Rest In Peace and Heaven my good friend.
