My love and prayers to JoAnne, Don and all the family in the loss of John. I had the good fortune to become employed by the Renner family for most of my adult life. John was not only an employer, but over the 27 years I spent working for his company, he became my friend. John ran a tight ship with a kind and thoughtful heart. I learnt so many life lessons from him. I am thankful that I was able to keep in touch with him and JoAnne after retiring. To JoAnne, Don and family there are not words to express my sorrow for you. I will keep you all in my prayers. Palms 147: He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
