Tish, Brian and Bruce, My deepest condolences on the loss of John. The Page's truly cherish the decades-long friendship we had with John. He was a funny and sharp gentleman whose wit I always enjoyed and honesty I found refreshing in this world. Returning home to Pittsburgh will not be the same without the occasional bumping into him at River City Brass or the store and getting caught up. You are all in my heart as we sadly lose another great man this year. Please take care of yourselves, LOVE Heather Page
