Flashbacks ensue. Victor says John took his name from a sign at the midnight mission and even having no real name, he had courage. "I will miss him." He says and wishes he could make things right.

Sami goes to the podium and says she never would have thought she'd be giving a eulogy because in the past she and John didn't get along well. She calls John a caring, loving, forgiving man, a good friend, a heroic father…"I can only begin to tell you how lucky I am to have two wonderful fathers," she says through tears.

Roman gets up to the podium and says he's sure nobody had a stranger relationship with John than he, since they shared a name, family and a life.

Roman thinks John had class and says if anyone was ever going to have his name, "I am honored it was you!"
Marlena thanks everyone for coming, saying he touched so many lives. "Here I am my love. I'm having a hard time finding the words to say what you meant to me.

You were my knight in shining armor," she says, but stops talking when Stefano arrives in a wheelchair!
