This is Wes Bright. My 9 year old son was Gavin, who John had the Baseball picture of in his room at Sterling House in Urbana. We just found out about his passing. Gavin and I went to visit him today. We were so sad to hear of his passing. Gavin lost it in the nursing home. If someone from the family can please get a hold of me I would really appriciate it. Gavin would like to get a picture of John if at all possible. Thank you. Wes
