Jonna, I just found out about your precious Dad passing away. I am so sorry that I didn't find out sooner. He was such a remarkable man; I remember how much you two carried on and how much you both loved each other. You were a great daughter to a great man. You two were meant to be dad and daughter. You were both very special to me and I will never forget the times I was around you both. Prayers to you my precious friend.
Hey Dad....I went out to the cemetery last week to get some flowers that were there upon your grave site....I wasn't stealing....They were yours....didn't think you would care....I had 3 Wally World bags full...talked to you the whole time I was pulling off flowers....even tho, I knew you weren't there in the ground....hopefully, you heard me up in Heaven....I brought the flowers home....and, have tried to make a remembrance of you from them....I know, Dad....everybody that ever met you....will never forget you....You were, are....the first man in my life....even tho, you wanted a boy...:)
John was always one of my favorite people. He seemed so happy and positive about everything.
Dottie, I am so sorry for your loss. John was a wonderful person and a pleasure to work with here in Memphis. So many years together - what wonderful memories you have to keep him alive in your life. Thoughts and prayers are with you. Marilyn Nemeth, Olive Branch, MS
Dottie, You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We love you and miss you. So glad we got to see you and John during our visit. John has always been such a wonderful man and will be missed by so many people, especially you.
Dottie, Sorry I can't be with you today. I drove through your LR neighborhood yesterday, your Dogwood tree looks great. Remembering all the good times relaxing on the deck with you and John.
I really don't know what to say about Grandpa, so I'm just going to be completely honest. I've known him all my life and not once have I seen him frown. His smile was the one smile I will have drilled into my head for the rest of my life. He will forever hold a place in my heart. I love him and miss him, but he's in a better place now. I also want Dottie to know how much I appreciate her. Without her, I wouldn't be here.
Well, that's pretty much all I have to say about that...I know he is smiling down on us at this very moment, and forever.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your loved one, Dottie. May God give you strength and grace to go forward and may precious memories keep John forever alive in your heart. Sending love and prayers to you
I worked for John at the Postal Service in Little Rock, AR during most of the 1990s until he retired and could not have asked for a nicer boss; he was a great guy and loved his family very much; he will be missed;
He was the kindest man I ever knew and I always felt comfortable around John.
I remember John as a civic minded, humble, patient, giving, caring and fun loving person. John was a special person who I will miss. Sending thoughts of the good times and prayers for comfort to the Cook -Wood family.
