I am so sorry for your loss. I grew up with John, though we all knew him as “Johnny” back then. Even as a teenager he always treated others with the utmost kindness and compassion. I am blessed to have known him and to have called him my friend. I pray that God will wrap his arms around your family while you grieve, and that you will feel His Comfort and His Peace that passes understanding.

Had the privilege of knowing John when I was a young man and again more recently as an adult. He made an impact on everyone he encountered and truly cared about people. Always gave more than required. Prayers for your family as you go through this difficult time.
