    Our family extends their condolences to the John Gordon Seetin family as you grieve his passing. We spent time with him at the Seetin reunion in the Lawrence/KsCity area in July 2019. His life has had great meaning to you. As you mourn, you will find much more as well, as you reflect and understand his gifts. May you be blessed and comforted.
