I was saddened to read of John's passing. I was the speech therapist that worked with him at home and have frequently thought of him. He was such a kind, caring man that greeted me at each visit with a huge smile! I could count on him to bless MY day each time! I will pray that God continue to wrap His loving arms around each of you as you walk through this difficult time together.

John was certainly a father figure and example to me.He will be greatly missed this side of eternity, but I am confident we will see him again if we are in Christ!Among many unsteady and immature people, he helped me see that a Christian can stay quiet and do the right thing....even when it is difficult.I cannot express what that meant to me as a baby Christian. My blessings and prayers to the family.
