  1. John will be truly missed. I bought many books from him over
    the years. Mr. Kraljevich stated that John was disappointed about
    the disparity between knowledge and success; John Burns would
    have been wealthy beyond belief. I think John would have enjoyed
    the background music (Gregorian Chants)!! Rest in Peace.
