Hi Uncle Johnny, It's been a year today that we were told you wouldn't be with us for much longer. That day was the worst day of my life. That day showed me that life is too short and that you should love and treasure your loved ones to its fullest as with no warning, they can be taken away from us. You loved us unconditionally and always made sure we knew this. I miss your hugs and kisses. I miss our family gatherings with your famous BBQ and the house filled with your great taste in music. I miss everything that you represented. We had a candle lighting last night for you and all the pain came rushing back. I know you're in a place with no pain and suffering which brings me some peace. I love and miss you soooo much. Merry Christmas Uncle Johhny, it just wont be the same without you.......ever again. MUAH! Loving you forever...Your neice...."Gooljar"

Hi Uncle Johnny, Today is a hard day, my heart is hurting, I miss you so much. When I go to the house, I just pretend you're out with your friends to help ease the emptiness I feel when I'm there. But unfortunately, that is not working so well anymore. I want you to come back, I miss your hugs and kisses and hearing you call me "Gooljar!".....that was your last word to me before you left us. I know you're well now which gives me some comfort but selfishly it's not enough. I love you with all my heart and miss you like crazy! Your Niece...Christine "Gooljar"

My belated condolences to all of John's loved ones. However, I only learned of John's death yesterday when I visited the library to thank him for all those loan extensions he had given me over the years as I worked on my dissertation. And this he was doing for a total stranger! I wanted John to know that those extensions were a vital resource in my ability to complete that dissertation. Perhaps one day, I might be given the opportunity to repay that debt. Thanks John.
February 15, 2011
Every year on May 8 I think of him since that is his birthday. Sometimes I even had a chance to pop into the library to see him. As a student in the mid-80's,grad student in the 90's, and now as a prof at York (Glendon)I go way back with John. I can honestly say I wouldn't have completed my Ph. D without his frequent assistance. Really, really miss you John!! You are now in God's hands. jvk.

My name is Dominic Armstrong

I am a friend of JaNae's and I just wanted to send my prayers and condolence to the Armogan family. I have never met Mr. Armogan but I already knew he was an amazing as well as great man by his daughter JaNae Armogan, she is blossoming so well in this industry I figured it had to have come from home, you have done a great job Mr. Armogan I wish I had the opportunity to meet you in person but apart of me feels like I've already have threw your daughter, It's been my honor.
Ms. Armogans if there is anything I can do please let me know. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
January 10, 2011
Hey John,

I didn't know where else to write, talk, or just to express what I'm feeling. I just wanted to say that I miss you alot and I still can't believe that your gone. I still feel your presence at times somewhere at the house. I just wish I can drive you somewhere and go on the road again just to have a drink or run the lotto numbers. Talk again soon.

John,

In the time that I spent with you although not nearly enough, I saw the type of man you were. Thank you for making me feel a part of your family. Know that I will look after your daughter when she is down here in LA.
December 19, 2010
We feel like you were truly our brother not just a brother in law. We will miss the late nights of talking, music, refreshments and movies. We will miss the vacations and cooking lessons, and the hours spent on those long distance phone calls. Although you are not here physically you will always be in our hearts Good bye to our brother and friend.
Love Always Bro,
Wayne & Yvonne

Our uncle was a caring and loving man. He was always so laid back and easy going, except when it came to boys. Then he became the most overprotective person that you would ever want to meet. We would warn any boy that came over the house that OK you are going to meet my uncle and yes he is worse than our dad. We always knew that it was because he wanted the best for us and thought that we deserved noting less. We will miss you Uncle John. We know that you are watching from heaven and still protecting us.
Love,
Your Nieces

My Dearest Jan, Shanna & Janae. I've shedded my tears but not for John because, he is okay now with Bro Sammy, lil Sammy & Mc.

Brother John, of the many things to be proud of in this life I must say its been an honour to call you my "Big Bro". And although I know you are in a better place right now, you left us too soon. You will surely be missed, but this is not good bye John, it's until we meet again! Love you always and forever. Joycelyn & Family.

I am so sad to hear of John's passing. I worked with John at the Scott library many years ago and he was a great coworker and friend; he always had a smile and a kind word to offer. He will be sorely missed by many. My sincerest condolences to John's family and friends.

Uncle Johnny; My Role Model.

My uncle johnny has had such an impact on so many peoples lives. He was a dedicated, caring, loving and unique man who created so many great memories throughout his life with his family and friends.
Uncle Johhny went out of his way for everybody, no matter how high the standards were, all he wanted to do was make people happy and his love for people was amazing, the way he reached out to everyone and cared for everybody equally.

This has been very hard on me as well. Uncle johnny was a leader, he was the man that was going to protect me from boys, who made me smile and laugh as soon as i walked through the door, the man who loved me to an extent that over powered any mans love, and he has succeeded in doing all of these things, and i respect him for making that section of my life special for me.

Uncle Johny & Aunty Jan have raised two beautiful twin daughters. Since his passing, i see a little bit of him in all of them. Its been very hard seeing them go through his death, but i admire there strength and acceptance throughout this very emotional process, and it will be hard but everything will be okay because they have a family that loves them, and cares for them.

Uncle Johhny, was respected and loved by everyone and I look up to him for that. Thankyou for making my life and many other peoples special and being there for me when i needed you. You will be missed and I will love you forever and always.

- Your loving niece; Deja Gooljar

It was so touching reading all the wonderful comments, great words and positive influence my baby brother had on so many lives.
"The Beginning"
Jasoda & Kenneth Armogan gave birth to a beautiful bouncing baby boy, John A. Armogan (May 8, 1952).
This was the beginning of our lives brought together for a reason, and I will always be eternally grateful to my parents.
John (my Byah), Thank you for your unconditional love, wisdom and your understanding. Thank you for being the most outstanding and genuine part of my life!
I promise, I will do my best to fulfill your legacy and at the same time faithfully watch over your beautiful family.
Our bond is everlasting and my world will never be the same without you (our baby picture says it all).
See you later "Amar"
Everlasting Love

John Boy,
It has taken me a while to accept the fact that you're gone. I will never understand it but I will accept it.
We grew up together, from D'anrade Street to St Jamestown, we were friends, roommates but first and foremost we were like family. Over the years we didn't stay in contact as much as we should and in retrospect I now wish we had. Who knew you would be taken from us so soon.
I am proud of how you've grown from Johnny to John - from a boy to a man - and the loving husband and proud father you became. These words seem so hollow and I wish I could be saying them to your face.

Jan, Shanna & JaNae my deepest condolences and I know no matter how hard this may seem the foundation has been laid by an incredible human being. John, I will say "so long" and not "goodbye" as whomever you've touched will always have you in their memory.

Jan,Shanna and JaNae - What an amazing man John was.His presence would light up a room wherever he was (even at the Dental office) He will truly be missed and I pray the peace of God will comfort you all at this time.
In Sympathy. Janet Thompson
December 17, 2010
Jan, I don't have words adequate enough to express my sorrow at your loss. We've talked about John for years and I know you shared a very deep love for one another. He has left behind three wonderful women who I know he was very proud of. My thoughts and love are with you and the girls as you go through this most difficult time.

In all the time I worked with John, I never heard a negative word about him. One of my best memories is the student who used a wheel chair and came to tell me that it was John who, for several years, made it possible for her to use the washroom in the library.

I never talked to John about work; we always talked about out daughters. He was so proud of his girls and I enjoyed seeing pictures of them from the time they were infants to the time they were beautiful young women.

My sincere sympathy to his family.
December 17, 2010
Bro,
When I think of you, I think "LOVE". That is what you emitted to everyone around you. Just pure LOVE. And that will forever be my memory of you.
You were and will always be remembered as a PHENOMENAL man, husband, father, uncle, brother and friend.

Jan, Shanna and JaNae,
We love you all dearly and will always be here for you.

Luv,

Joanne, Stephen, Alexiyah, Jevaughan and Jazlyn
December 17, 2010
To Jan and the girls,

I am so sorry for your loss, Johnny was a wonderful, soft, caring man who loved the three of you with every fiber of his being. For someone who have walked this walk, it isn't easy but eventually the smile will come back and you will feel the warmth of his love all around you.
December 17, 2010
I will like to extend my condolences to the family and friends of John Armogan. I will like to add the traditional Islamic condolence "To God we belong and to Him we return," and I will like to use Prophet Moses prayer: "O my Lord! forgive me and my brother! admit us to Thy mercy! for Thou art the Most Merciful of those who show mercy!" (7:151).
Ameen!
December 17, 2010
Dear Jan, Shanna, and Janae,
There are no words to express to you, that would ease your pain and sorrow.
I can tell you, regretfully, that I know what you are feeling at this time, so soon after John's transition. I can tell you only God's special gift of time will get you through, and make the pain you are feeling now, start to fade further, and further away, then LOVE, and memories, will fill the hole in your hearts. Please take care of each other... John was one of the good guys. God bless.

Jan, Shanna and JaNae, I offer you my deepest sympathies for your loss. For almost 20 years, John and I worked together on the night shift at Scott Library. We were more than just co-workers though, I considered him a good friend. We shared many laughs and good times over the years but most of all I remember how fondly he always spoke his family and how proud he was of his daughters. He always had a video to show me or some pictures of a recent vacation or family get together. I've always had a deep respect for John and his presence in our department will be greatly missed.
Sincerely,
Rocco
December 16, 2010
To John's wife, daughters and his sister Sandra.
You all have my deepest sympathies. Some years ago I was on a temporary assignment in Scott Library. I'll never forget John's kindness, support and patience during that time.
I feel very fortunate to have known John. My thoughts are with you all.
December 16, 2010
Dear John, I'm honoured to have worked a few years as a student under your supervision. As a supervisor, you were caring and treated your staff with respect. Many nights you would give me a ride home after work, and always asked if I needed extra shifts to help me out during difficult times. I'm grateful for what you have done for me, and the influenced you have passed on to me. I am saddened that you are no longer here, and I will miss you dearly. John, your legacy will never be forgotten. Rest in peace John.

Dear Armogan family, my condolence to your family. I hope you will find comfort and strength to carry on knowing that John loved you very much. When I worked for him at Scott Library, he often talked about you, and he was always proud to show me the pictures of your beautiful family in his office.
December 16, 2010
Johnny,
I remember coming over to visit with Anne Marie and the children, watching movies, talking and laughing with you, Jan, Shanna & JaNae. You always welcomed me into your home with warmth, always smiling and treating me as family. I remember thinking how fortunate and blessed that Jan was to have such a loving husband and how blessed the girls were to have you as their father and the example you set as a good man. I hope that Jan, Shanna & JaNae realize that you are only gone in body but not in spirit and you will continue to protect & bless them as their Angel now and forever.
December 16, 2010
Dear Jan,

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your husband, John. I wish you and your family much strength to get through this.
December 16, 2010
Jan and Family, it is with much sadness that I write this. The news of your husband's passing was quite alarming. I did not know John but I do know that you would miss all the things you have experienced with him. I pray that you and the girls and extended family would be over-whelmed with peace and strength beyond your understanding during this challenging time. There is a season for everything and joy would return each time you think of John.
Love Bernie
December 16, 2010
Uncle Johnny, you're the best! We love you and we will miss you. I will always remember our favourite dance - cent, five cent, ten cent, dollar and you scolding me for forgetting your birthday!One scolding from you was all I needed! Rest in peace.

Jan, Shawna, and JaNae, we love you.
May you feel God's love even in your time of sadness.

December 16, 2010
Dear John,

You were the best boss I've ever had,
though the news of your passing is sad.
Now you are resting in peace,
no need to suffer pain, at least.
I will always remember your kindness,
guided me through work with my blindness.
Three months we were working together,
but you will be in my heart forever.

Memories never let me cry,
and you never have said goodbye.
Us circulation staff miss you badly,
now continue to spread your tenderness in eternity.
Sands of time will keep your memory,
may God have mercy.

Dry your tears with love.
December 15, 2010
Jan, Shanna, JaNae:
There are no words to describe the sorrow of John's passing. To know him is to love him and we are thankful that he touched our lives.

We know the pain of your loss is beyond measure, but hope you find comfort in knowing that his legacy lives in each of you. Shanna you have his smile, JaNae you have his laugh and Jan you will always have his heart. May God bless you and keep you in his loving arms.

We love you all very much and are here for you.

From New York. To John's Family and Sister Sandra. May John Rest In Peace. We were close friends while I was at YU/Toronto and continued to be from NY though I saw and heard from him less. He was a great father, husband, brother, friend and colleague. I am SOOO VERY SAD TO HEAR THIS and even more so being unable to come to Toronto. I have a mug with the "Girls" from way back and remember him selling me chocolate to help their fund raising.

December 15, 2010
To my dearest family. I can recall only good times at the family reunions in Thomasville,Ga. I always looked forward to see my small twin cousins. I kept pictures from year to year. John was always happy to see me. He would give me a big hug as if we talked all the time. It's been numerous years since we saw each other but the love continued. To Jan & twins, may GOD's peace and understanding be upon your lives in this dark hour of losing a husband,friend,lover,comforter,provider, father,friend, and many many other things that he brought into ur lives. Love you
December 15, 2010
My heartfelt condolences go out to all the Armogan family.

To the Armogan family:

I have had a great pleasure to be a part of John’s circulation team (at least for a year); during that time I got to know how he is one of the most open-minded people ever! He was a supportive friend and was a positive and empathic person to everyone at all times.

I am intensely saddened by his untimely departure.

Please accept my sincere condolences.
December 15, 2010
To the Armogan Family,
Words cannot express how I felt just now reading this sad news. John was a very special person to me and was so wonderful to work with when I was in Scott Library ... I was there when he started working in 1976 and we shared many great smiles together. He was the best and will be missed terribly.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
With much love.
December 15, 2010
Uncle Johnny,
This still feels like a dream, I keep waiting for you to walk through the door so I can hug you and have a sigh of relief that this was not real at all....but it's not happening. I feel so empty without you. It is a given that you were an amazing husband and father but it has to be said that you were also an amazing Uncle. You were the only man that made me feel protected and safe....just like a father does for his child and that is how you embraced me.....your niece.
I keep waiting for you to call out, "GOOLJAR", so I could say, Yes Uncle Johnny?"
I know you want me to be strong for Aunty Jan and the girls and I promise, I will, because I know your here with us, I can feel you all around me.
I love and miss you so much!
Christine Gooljar.
December 15, 2010
The worse part about having a large and loving family is missing them when they are gone. John, I have always seen you as true representative of what being a part of the Arrington family meant. Thank you for all of your love, kindness and being a true indication of what a great father and husband should be. My sincerest blessings and love are extended to my cousins, Jan, Shanna and JaNae and the remainder of friends and family during this very challenging time.

To John – a wonderful cousin and even more wonderful cook :) you will be missed!

At the peak of my despair…

Breathless and steady I listen
I wait for a time when the truth
Is not what I hear but what I once knew
A theory of query beneath my dream’s saddle
Bringing forth joy, sweet Ontario and laughter
Potent to the words, hung to the smile
Fancy of the faith and attached to the miles
Of lovingness and hugs filled with mustache
Kisses on the cheek and whispers of kind words delicately
Laced with endeared emotional family ties
Days are long for the wait of another chance
To remember the way my heart responds to such trueness of love's embrace
Gliding its way from your soul…
I’ll step away for just a moment to return to us and we’ll both smile
And be at the peak of my rejoice

~Love Nene

Dear Johnny,
I am so shocked and heartbroken to hear about your passing. I had the honor and the pleasure to work with you and to know you for the past 20 years. Your generous nature and sense of humor had touched my life in a very positive way. I am always proud to tell people that I was trained by John. I promise to give my best in my current job; I will never let you down, Johnny, your legacy will continue though I am going to miss your guidance and advice. You will always be in my heart and always remembered. Thank you Johnny for all the good laughs and good memories we shared at Scott Circulation.
To Jan, Shanna and JaNae,
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. You were the center of his whole world. He always spoke highly of his girls and always showed his unconditional love for his family. May the beautiful memories you have shared with him give you comfort and strength to bear this huge loss and may the love of those around you help you through the days ahead.
With deepest sympathy,

To the Armogan Family:

Although I did not know John personally, I know he comes from an incredibly strong and loving family that is supporting one another during this difficult time. His wife, sister and family are in my prayers. I hope you find some peace as you take the time to reflect on all the wonderful impressions and contributions John made to friends/family and strangers alike throughout his life.
December 15, 2010
John was my best friend who became my brother. He was the person I depended on when life threw my a curve. His wisdom and patience has carried me thus far. He will be missed by me and never forgotten. He will live on through his beautiful children and his life will be remembered though his wife's reflections. God needed another Angel to help him spread love and joy in the world and that would be John. I will miss your daily phone calls even though your voice will always be in my head. My Family and I love you and will always miss you.
December 15, 2010

DearJanorris, Shanna and JaNea:

I was so sorry to hear of John's passing. I knew him from the day he came to work at Scott. We never worked together but had many talks over the years. As others have said, John always had a smile for everyone, was unfailingly kind and helpful and never had a nasty word.

He will be very much missed by anyone who ever knew him.

I wish you and yours the very best in this very difficult time.

Dear Armogan Family,

I am so sorry to hear of your sudden loss. John was always a fun person with a great sense of humour. Unfortunately death has a sting that time may dull, but not erase. The death of a loved one is hard to endure. Please accept my deeptest sympathies for the family at this time.

With deep sympathy,

Words cannot express how I feel. All I know is I feel the pain of losing another brother. Although you were married to my sister, I consider you a blood brother. We all have had so many wonderfrul times together. I am so glad I walked into the Flowing World the night we met. I knew right away your spirit was good and I could not wait to introduce you to Jan. That night started the beginning of so many wonderful things to come. My sister was truly blessed to have you for a husband, and you left her two beautiful gifts (the girls) among many other memories to cherish. You two had a rare gift and that is true love (you were lucky enough to have met the love of your lives). I am truly going to miss your smile, your knowledge and love of good music, your cool and addictive personality, the fun times, your sense of humor, and your love of serving your talent of great cooking. May your soul dwell in the heavens with God; and may your spirit always be near those you love. You were such a courageous man. I know Daddy and Sammy will welcome you and be happy to see you again. They have the pleasure of your presence now. Love you!
December 14, 2010
To my loving family my condolences are with you and the family at this time of your lost. Love Alicia,Tiara,Kenya & MiKala.. I remember at yall reception how i cried and John told me not to cry cause he was gonna take good care of you ,thats a day i'll never forget. John you will always be remembered
December 14, 2010
Jan, I am sure that there are no words to comfort you and your girls right now. I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that there are so many of us keeping you and your family in our thoughts right now and hoping and praying you find the strength to get through this.
December 14, 2010
Dear Jan,
I wish I knew the right words to say to you now. At a time like this even close friends can't find the words to comfort one another. I will always remember the joy and love in John's voice when he talked about you or your beautiful daughters. May God bless you and the girls with courage and strength to bear the days ahead. Know that you're so very dear to me and I love all so much. Love from Jerry, Amanda and little Jerren too.

Dear Jan, Shanna & JaNae,

I am soooooo very sorry about John's passing. It's hard to put it into words. It is such a pleasure to have known John for so many years. He was truly one of a kind. Such a genuine, thoughtful & caring person. Jan, it was extremely obvious to me that John absolutely adored you, and for that I truly admired him. Shanna & JaNae I don't think I've ever seen a father that was more proud and protective of his daughters, he always spoke very highly of you both, you were and still are his pride & joy.

My heart goes out to the three of you. I pray that God will comfort you in His loving arms, and that you will be stengthened by the love of your family and friends. Know that this separation from your loved one is only temporary and that you will be with him again. xoxoxo

God Bless you all,

Love Heather

Uncle Johnny, I'm gonna miss your sincerity and your kindness. No matter what, you were welcoming and always thought of me right down to making a CD of music you thought I would like and for no special reason. I will cherish those little things. I'm glad to have known you for so many years. Thanks Uncle Johnny.

Jan, Shanna, JaNae,

Words cannot do justice to the shock and sadness I am feeling. John was truly a dear friend and a man who touched everyone who knew him and who had the pleasure of working with him. His office and his heart were always open. His smile and laughter were infectious and many a time seemed to lighten a burden and keep me grounded.

Anyone who knew John understood that his family was the centre of his universe. Often he would tell me how proud he was of his daughters and how much he cherished his time off with them and his wife. He would share amusing anecdotes about his children when they were little and marvelled at how quickly they had grown.

I will miss him very much but I know he is cherished in the many hearts he leaves behind and in this sense will never die.

With deepest sympathy,
Claudio

Hello Jan, Shanna and Janae,

I am so sorry for your loss. John was a very good and dear man. He will be dearly missed by all those who's lives he touched including mine. It saddens me that he had to leave so suddenly. He's with God now and will always be watching over his family in spirit. Be strong. Your friend always, Deborah

Dear Armogan family,

There are no words really. I heard the sad news yesterday about your dad and can't begin to say how shocked and saddened I am. You can't put into words this type of pain. I hope you can feel the love and condolences that I send to you, your mother and sister.

John was the kind of father that everyone wanted. He had the ability to instantly make you like him. A kind man with a good soul. Even though I had only met him on a few occasions, his warmth, kindness and generosity just surrounded him. It only took a few seconds for him to make you feel welcome and his home was ours.

While our world is now a little colder, heaven is a little warmer.

So sorry that Bianca and I couldn't be there during this time, but please know that you are in our hearts.

May God bless you and your family and may his angels surround and comfort you today and everyday.

Lots of Love,

Terence Kenneth.

My condolences to you and your family.

I was 15 when I first met John, Jan and the girls. I won’t say exactly how long ago that was, but I will say that I have always been made to feel welcome. John always greeted me with a hug, whether it had been weeks or years since our last visit.
I will not mention how great a man John was…it is understood by all who were ever blessed to be in his presence. I will speak of his legacy. John and Jan emulate what true love means. Shanna and Janae are beautiful, kind thoughtful, and carry themselves with grace and poise that is proof positive they have been surrounded by unconditional love.
All that is said at this time….all words spoken in an effort to try and ease your pain are spoken from the hearts of everyone who knew John. I love you all.

My Darling Husband: You are my soul mate. We've had 28 years of complete and unconditional love. You are the most charming, loving, caring and sincere person I've ever met, and I'm blessed that you shared your life with me. I only hope I gave you a fraction of the happiness you gave me. There is not one person who's ever met you who didn't fall under your spell. I'm trying to be strong and to be the person you know I can be, but I'm so lost without you! But I know I'll survive because our love is eternal. I just have to look at our daughters to know that. You are forever in my heart...I LOVE you baby and keep my place beside you because one day we WILL be together again!
December 13, 2010
I will never forget how we met. I will never forget the times we had together. The times when we all got together to play dominoes, the talks we had and shared, the jokes you made, the driving around we did to go from bar to bar, the lotto, everything. There were so many things we did together and so many things you showed me.You tried to school me on the grill and in the kitchen. Everywhere I go I'm always going to be thinking of you. I lost a piece of me when you left just like everyone has. But I will always end up looking up at the sky with a tear and a smile on my face knowing that you are always watching over us. I will try to fill-in your shoes and play my part but that can never be replaced. There is so much more to say. I will always be your son, the "chiney-man". Love you always.

To the Armogan family: I had the pleasure of working closely with John for two and a half years. He was my supervisor but he was also a friend: once, a bunch of us from Scott library went to go see The Matrix with John and his lovely wife.

I am shocked and deeply saddened by this unexpected tragedy. Please accept my sincerest condolences.

Hello. This is a terrible tragedy. I worked with John at Scott Library Circulation for 9 years, between 1990 and 1999. He was a wonderful manager and always dealt fairly with his staff. I'm shocked and saddened to hear about his passing. My sincere condolences go out to his wife and two daughters.

Dear Daddy,

You are such an amazing man, I have to admit things haven’t been easy, but at the same time I don’t expect them to be. Even though you left us physically, I know you’re with us spiritually. I promise to do right by you and take care of our family. You are the strongest, bravest and protective man, father and husband I know. After putting my anger aside to think about things, I realized that God has a better plan for you and you’re not alone, you’re with Grand Daddy Samuel, Uncle Sammy, and your father, and I’m sure there’s much to discuss, I’m sure you have a lot to catch up on and they welcomed you home with open arms. I just want you to know that I love you more than life itself and I will always be your Ouis, xoxo. Not only did you teach me strength, but you always taught me how to be strong, you gave me the strength to not hold a grudge, life is clearly too short, everything happens for a reason, I accept that God wanted you to come home, only because you accepted it. It doesn’t mean I like it, but I’m willing to deal with it.

I’ll love you forever, I like you for always, as long as I’m living and even when I die, the best daddy you’ll be.

You’re Ouis,

Aka

JaNae

Dearest Daddy,

I would be lying if I said that I wasn't upset you had to go home. I feel like there was so much left for you to do with me, JaNae and Mommy. Daddy, your passing has surfaced a lot of things that help me understand why god wouldn't wait to have you. You bring Joy to anyone you have ever spoken to, like the person who sells you the lottery tickets, and to my friends that feel like family because of the joy and thoughtfulness you bring from your spirit. Your Poise is unlike any other being, you always, even after death, leave a memorable impression that always keeps people smiling with the thought. I couldn't find a word to grasp a better meaning than immaculate, if you know of a word, put that in front of Husband! I mean, if your two daughters aren't proof enough that you are, then all the years you demonstrated your strength, knowledge and love to create the bond between our family should suffice. I don't think I have ever met someone who didn't comment on how great it is or how lucky I am to have parents like you and Mommy. And last but not least Daddy, you are an example of what people aime to be in life. You are Noble, whenever anyone describes you Daddy, they say "John is a GREAT person". Everyone uses that term "GREAT". As a person, you have brought:

Joy in people's lives, you motivate other to follow your pOise, you're a successful Husband and father, and you are Noble. It is time for you to start the next chapter if your life; you have been a great father, Brother, Husband, Friend and MAN! Now it's time to be a GREAT angel. I love you Daddy and I support the next chapter of your life because I know you'd do the same.

Love,
Shanna
