“He was such a part of my life growing up, The Beatles, the ’60s, I can’t even talk” said one woman.
“When it comes to talking about peace, you probably could not meet a nicer person than John Lennon. He was all about peace, and that’s what we need today in our country” said another fan who came to pay his respects.
