I am glad my sister and you found each other. An example of a loving family that more people should aspire too.

Many good times and projects we worked together. We will all miss you here at the office. Our prayers to the family, see you all soon.

I have always looked up to you. You carried an aura with you that said don’t mess with me but to me you were always kind and very funny. You never missed anything that was going on around you and you would always get your jab in. Even if was only a look, a look only John could give. You raised your family your way and have every reason to be proud of the outcome. Many memories flooding my mind. The first wedding I remember attending. A Very fast Road Runner! Softball games, fishing at the lake, Monopoly, you swimming for the first time, Stone Mountain , cards, of course football. Many family gatherings but the last one for sure. As you were getting ready to go I shook your hand and told you that you should be a proud man for the family you had. You just gave that smile and said so should you. You and your family mean more to me than you’ll ever know and I’m proud to call you my Uncle John.
