So sad to hear. I used to work with John. My deep condolences.

Beth,
I am so sorry for your loss. We were praying daily for his recovery and continue to pray for you as you go through the hardest of times.

So sorry to hear of John's passing. I've often wondered about him (and Beth) over the past 15-20 years, since we lost contact. John and I (and Beth!) first met in North Dakota, in a Missile Warning unit, as lieutenants. He was one of T.H.E. funniest people I'd ever met, and was always wisecracking and laughing. We PCS'd, then some time later found we both lived in Colorado Springs, where we again got in touch off and on...but somehow lost touch. To this day, I always think of him laughing it up one night in the BOQ, kicking back with a knit cap on his head, and that silly, mischievous grin on his face. That's how I'll always remember him. Beth, so sorry to hear of his passing; our thoughts go out to you.

Beth,

I had the pleasure of working with and knowing John while working at AFSPC/A5. He was a great man and I am honored! I know he really fought to stay with us, but the Lord needed him more. I am in total awe of you standing by him during the most difficult fight of your lives...your love, strength, inspiration and faith has touched me beyond words. I think of John, you & Nora on a daily basis and only wish you have the best of memories, laughs, and smiles of the times you had together. May God bless you and give you comfort that John gave you.

Hugs & Loves
