I am so sorry to hear about John's passing. He was certainly a kind, gentle soul. He was always so very kind to me and my family. May his soul rest in peace.

I am deeply saddened to hear about the loss of John. I met John along the way in East Boston, and saw him on Thursday's, when he would come into Donna's eatery and spend some time there. He was always willing to chat for a few, and was a very kind and gentle soul in my eyes. May the good lord bless you John and your beautiful family. On behalf of my good friend Joe and myself who are regular visitors to Donna's we send our condolences to the Connolly Family.
