  3. I’m so sorry for your loss! I wish I was there to give you a hug!Laura

  4. My condolences to the Blazek family. I worked the overnight shift at Carol Wright Gifts for three years and John was also working the overnight shift in a different department. I often recall how much I enjoyed playing “speed chess” with him over our breaks and lunches. I will always remember him as a person I respected and enjoyed having conversations with.

  5. Cathy and family, I am so sorry to learn of John’s passing. He is still with you in your hearts and memories and you will be together again. I tell everyone that Cathy was the best person to have in Madonna staffing and could run the dept. by herself. Miss you.
