    To the Falcone Family. Please accept our condolences. You are in our thoughts and prayers. I feel that you will find comfort as you think about John and what he means to you.

    John has a special way as he explained the Farm. He never bragged about his accomplishments but it sure was evident when you looked over the many acres of Grapes.

    John may you rest in peace as you sure have earned your place in heaven.
