    Our hearts are heavy. John has been a wonderful friend for over 50 years. He has brought a lot of smiles and leaves a lot of memories. I will never forget the times he would stop over to talk to my mom and dad, bringing a pizza, or a milkshake, and always leaving them laughing. He used to drop by to talk to Rob and me on our porch on Paris St. and then on Milroy. He persevered through a lot of pain with his medical problems but still was looking out for others…John….we’re sure going to miss your visits…and your welcoming us to your home to show us your “finds!” Jan, Brad and grandchildren….we will be keeping you in prayer as you continue life….Thanking Our Lord for sending HIS COMFORTER to you.
