Von Bodenmiller

West Central Ohio

My condolences and sympathies to the entire O'Grady family. Having never met John, I only knew him through his posts and words on Ag Talk but considered him as my friend. His wisdom and helpfulness always shone through and was appreciated by everyone who read those posts no matter where they were at in the world. The entire Ag Talk family will miss John and all of his postings. May he rest in peace and may his family,friends and everyone that knew him understand all of the countless lives he touched around farm and ranch country with his positive experiences and words of wisdom.

I had never met John personally, but only read his postings on Ag Talk. His postings were never controversial and he was open to other people's opinions. He also was not afraid to talk about his Catholic beliefs. I will be missing him on Ag Talk.

I am very sorry to hear of John's passing. I knew John when he was just a little boy and his parents too. My dad, mom, sisters and I stayed out at his ranch 2 different times back in the sixties to watch over things when he and his parents went on vacation. What great memories of John and his family.
