John was a wonderfully soft spoken true southern gentleman. He and his wife were so very gracious to us, especially our daughter. We are saddened at this time that we were not there in person. He and Nadean were such a support when our beloved Mama, Sarah Bates, died and am sorry that we cannot reciprocate. We have such good memories to hold on to and know that he is with the Lord.
Uncle Johnny, how you will be missed. There's not a kinder gentleman that I've had the pleasure of knowing my entire life. Heaven is a richer place because you are now there. Aunt Nadean and Cindy and family, you will be in our prayers. Love you
I remember John Bell as my S.School teacher when I first came to Van Buren. He loved Every Person Reguardless of Whsre they lived. He imparted much wisdom to me and was a TRUE Christ follower.My Sympathy to All the family. Mz. Nadene and Debbie I love you!!!
