“John and Kay were my God Parents who I remember from a young age and close friends of my parents John and Katherine Alisau. I can barely remember their two daughters when they would visit with my family at Christmas in the 1960's so long ago. I am sad to hear of John and Kay's passing who were always happy to see me as a child and wish to pay my respects to their family. ”
