    I only knew John for a short time, but he was a very kind person. My prayers are with you and your family. Psalms 34:18: The LORD is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.NIV version Holy Bible. I especially pray that you mah be given the peace that passes all understanding. God is willing and able to grant you this. I experienced it after my sister died. John will be missed greatly.

    I’m so sorry for this loss. I just saw John about a month ago. I’ve known John for many years and I’ll say that he was one of the nicest people. John always asked how my family was and often commented on positive things he had going on. I considered him a friend. Rest Easy my friend

    Life and growing up in different states didn’t allow for us to be great friends like I know we would have been but you will be greatly missed. I will enjoy the memory’s I have of the times we did share as kids, teens and later as adults when we were able to visit. RIP cousin
