Dear Nancy,
We are so sad to hear about John’s passing. He was Nicholas’ favorite teacher and was such a positive beginning for our son’s start to elementary school. John was always smiling and such a positive person. Know you, Nancy, will really miss him. Unfortunately, we did not read the obituary until after the service last Friday. I’m so glad I got to see you and John within the past year while out shopping.

Wishing you much love and support from your family and friends and find peace in all the wonderful memories you have of your years together. Please feel free to contact me should you ever be in the Longmont area.

God Bless,
Vicki Osgood

Mr. Prieskorn taught Kindergarten to my children, Suzanne in 1989 and Thom in1992 at Niwot Elementary School. He was kind and caring and they enjoyed being with him. I like to think that he gave them a good first impression of school that has served them well. Our condolences to his wife and family. We pray his soul will rest in peace with the Lord.
