My name is John. I live in Los Angeles, California. I am the eldest of 4 children. I was born on January 17th in Petaluma, California to James and the Late Marjorie Rodriguez. I was brought up an Air Force military brat. My Dad retired in 1969 after serving 21 years in the Air Force. My brother Jim and I served in the Air Force. Jim serving in England and I served in Southeast Asia (Korea/Thailand) during the Viet Nam Conflict, Texas and North Carolina. My brother Ed served in the Navy. Lisa is married to a wonderful man and has 3 children. I have a daughter, Monica, who lives in North Carolina. I miss and love her very much. We lost our Mom when I was 16 years old and have lived daily with the tears and saddness of our families loss. But, since finding this site I have been able to try and heal my inner feelings. Leaving messages, flowers, flags, etc for the many who are seeking inner freedom and spirituality for their loss has given me strength. I feel good about doing that. Even if deep down inside I continue to feel sorrow not only for my losses but for others. God has a plan for each of us. I know that He will not call us to Him unless He has a plan with Him beyond our life on earth. May God Bless you and let His light continue to guide you.
