To my brother who’s a forever friend...When we’re calling, when we’re texting, when we’re talking face to face…When we’re sitting sipping coffee (or a glass of wine) in a favorite place...When we’re laughing, giggling, crying or we’re working something out…when we listen to each other – every hope and dream and doubt…That’s when I know that I’ve been blessed and feel so grateful that God gave me a brother and a forever friend in you. You may recognize these words from the last birthday card you gave me. It will forever bring me wonderful memories of our special bond as brother and sister.
We loved you so much and are going to miss you in our life’s, until we meet again.
And who is going to ask me each day what we are having for dinner 😊 XO, RIP John

Grandpa- I have loved every minute of time spent with you. We had so many good laughs and good times and even some not so good times that we worked through together. You are my inspiration for nursing and I will complete my degree in honor of you. I wish you could be here for the big life moments of mine that we could share them together but I know you are watching over me and will be with me every step of the way. I miss you so incredibly much and still have a hard time believing that your not here but I hope your resting in sweet peace. I promise to always be there for my mom and my brother and my dad. To show compassion and to remember that patience is a virtue. To bring a snack to share at any function and I will most importantly tell your story and share your memory for years to come. Thank you for all that you have done for me and for all that you will continue to do. I can’t wait to see you again and give a big hug I can just hear you “hi hon it’s been awhile”. I hope you know that you are missed beyond measure and that you have touched so many lives during your time here on earth. I love you grandpa ❤️

I only knew John briefly but a person like John is rare. He touched my soul instantly with his compassion and kindness. He was the most generous person to my daughter Erin and her family. He loved life and he lived it fully. I will never forget the great human being that he was. May that sweet soul rest in peace. 🙏♥️

John was such a wonderful beautiful soul and I will miss visiting with him. He came into my life a little over 2.5 years ago when he was getting ready to sell his house. Throughout that time we became friends and I could share with him so much and know he could be trusted to hold it safe and say something kind and encouraging. He had the best laugh and he ALWAYS bragged on his kiddos and you could tell how much he loved and loved giving a hard time ..his sister Doris. He made both me and my family feel special and loved and I always knew how appreciated I was by him! I hope when he left this Earth that he knew how loved he was, because he really was loved! What a dear man. Prayers for all of you who were his family.
