Dear Debra and family... I am so very sorry to learn about your loss of John.

Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).

Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences and please do feel free to contact me.

I went to high school with John when he lived in Georgia, we became good friends back then. I have many fun memories of him and his smile was contagious! I will keep Debra and the rest of the family in my thoughts and prayers. It was evident, even through Facebook how much he loved his family, especially Debra. I know he will missed so much!

Words can not express the heart breaking sadness the news of John's passing has brought to us. One so cherished will never be replaced, I pray for strength and courage for his beloved family to make it through the difficult days ahead. May his precious memory keep them comforted as his arms and laughter once did. Sending love to you all and much, much prayer.

It was hard hearing about my sweet lifelong friend passing away. I sit here thinking about all of all our childhood memories and remembering all the good times we had. I will never forget John; he was one of my best buddies I ever had growing up. So glad we were neighbors and that I had the chance to know him. I send prayers for his family during this difficult time. John was loved by many and will be truly missed.

This is so unreal.... I am blessed to have known this man. John loved his family with all his heart and even then his heart was large enough to include many he met as family. He just loved. And so many loved him back. John ~always a smile on his face and a cheerful presence. I can't begin to tell you how much he will be missed.
To Debra, John jr, Cade and Ethan, and also Wilm, Lynda, Janelle and Victoria~ I grieve with you, but I do not know the depth of your grief.... I pray for God to bring you peace and comfort in the days and years to come.
John, until we meet again on the other side~~ rest in peace. <3
