Wow, this one really pulls at the heart strings.

Kudos to an officer with the Dover-Foxcroft police department for following their curiosity and getting the story behind this very wonderful man.  The picture and his story proves that the true heartfelt love that many of us search for does exist, and even within death, never really does die.

In this day and age of criticism and negativity, John is an example for us all to follow.  Treat others with compassion and understanding, and hold onto those that you love closely, forever, even in death.
