Sending our prayers for John, his family and his friends. We lived in Wilton, IA (near Lyon's home & near water tower) while my husband worked for MISCO. Also attended St. Mary's Catholic Church in Wilton. Knew your family well and your Mother, Betty, was always very thoughtful and kind to us all. May they both rest in peace. Paul, Joyce, Beth, Steve, Doug Kister
