Dear Judy and family….we are so sorry to hear of John’s passing. Judy, you have such a positive attitude and outlook, may your loving memories of John, and wonderful family times together bring you comfort. We are so grateful to John for his volunteer work here at Cambridge Memorial Hospital having contributed over 400 hours with the HELPP Lottery. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. On behalf of all the volunteers at CMH, our deepest sympathies. Jamie Radoja and Linda Rodrigues
