Dear Peachy, I just learned about Johnny. I'm so sorry for your loss. I was filled with so many memories of our families getting together when we were all so much younger. Johnny was always such a sweet man. My deepest sympathy to you and all your family.
Dear Muriel, we were sadden to hear of John's passing. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
In reading Mr. Bates obituary his feelings about life were so wonderful and most people take it for granted but he didn't. It made me feel so much better today because I was having a bad one. He seems to have been a great man and I am so sorry for his passing. I do not know your family but I felt I needed to tell you this because it touched my heart. Sincere sympathy for your loss and may all your happy memories live on.
I was so sorry to hear of Johnny's death, Peachy. I remember good times when our families visited, all of us kids playing in your back yard while the "grown-ups" talked. He was a kind, funny man who will be missed by many. Love, Anne Marie (Brown) Gazdik
Muriel and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you during this sad time
Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family. If it were not for uncle John's kindness I am not sure we would have even had a TV in our early years. Dad was very persistent and uncle John was very....well he was uncle John.

Aunt Peachy and the Bates, although we didn't see each other often, I always loved talking to John. I think there was always some special kinship between us. He was a true gentleman, a part of the "Greatest Generation" that set the standard for all future veterans. Rest in Peace John. To Aunt Peachy and the Bates family may God Bless you.
To Steven and Family I am sorry to hear of the loss of your Beloved Father may the wonderful memories give you comfort in your grief.
Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.
