I met John in the 80s and not for long. The closest I ever lived to him was Chicago. But we really never really drifted apart. I had not seen him for 19 years until last May. He was a great and inspirational guy from the day I met him until last Dec 26, when I last talked to him on the phone. Thank you all very much for your memories and remarks. And God Bless Cathy, Rachel, Taylor. Victoria and Brandon.

Four weeks ago you left this world for the majestic home of your Father. We miss your smile and loving spirit more than I can say. With God's strength and guidance we are all learning to live in a world without you. You would be so proud of Catie and Rachel. I love you.

You have my sympathies. I am Mark and Ruthie's niece, Kelly Smith Rudd. I met John camping with Uncle Mark and time vacationing in Arizona. He attended my little sister Shelly's funeral after she passed away from cancer two and a half years ago. He wanted to see the farm and the countryside where we grew up. He said "This is truly amazing and God's special place."

I wanted to send a message of prayers to John's family. Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. John provided that smile and big picture of what was important in life. I truly believe that Shelly and John are now in God's special place.

All my thoughts and prayers,

Kathy and family,

I'm Ruthie's daughter and have known John for many years. It is comforting to know how much he loved the Lord throughout his life, and is in the arms of his Savior. He was so good to my kids when they would visit. In a short time, he made a huge impact in their lives.

I am sorry for your loss. On behalf of the all of us -- Linda, Jake, Nick and Ashley -- our thoughts and prayers are with you, Rachel and your family.

Our relationship with the Allen Stoltzmann family goes back to 1958 when I came to teach at Gethsemane. Allen and Norma befriended us newlyweds as we moved in down the street from them. I was blessed to teach most of the boys, and coach "beginners' basketball". We left for Hong Kong in 1964 when John must have been a baby, so we were not blessed to know him, but the Stoltzmann family has a very warm spot in our hearts. It's a spot that is hurting right now as we feel the pain of your loss. We pray peace for each of you at this trying time....peace in Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
