John Desmone

It has been nearly 50 years since I served in the US Army with Jon Setzer, at Fort Lawton, Washington. Even then when Jon and I were 25 year old lieutanants, I could see the deep religious convictions in the hearts of these two outstanding people. There was nothing they would not do for friends. Heaven has welcomed Jon and Marion, and their new lives have just begun at the eternal super of the Lord. I am proud to know that our lives crossed those many years ago. May they rest in peace.
