I did not have the pleasure of knowing John, however I stand in honor of his life and service to this great nation. My deepest regrets go out to his family and friends. May he find comfort in the arms of our Lord Amy Saviour Jesus Christ.
My heart aches with yours as we both have suffered the deepest loss that a mother can ever experience, the loss of a son, a Hero, an American Soldier.
My sympathy, my understanding and my prayers go out to you.

There are no words to express how our hearts breaks with you during this time of bereavement. We will continue to pray that God gives you strenght and courage to carry on in Johnny's memory.
Love Stephen, Jessica and Aubrey
My son served 2/8 Echo Marines 2007-2011. Each time they went to Afghanistan, my life would move in slow motion; with each loss my heart would ache - and that ache continues today with each stateside loss. Words can not be said that can take your pain away. All this mother can say it "Thank You for your sacrifice and may you find comfort in the days that follow." Semper Fi
I did not know Johnny, nor the Lutz family, but God Strength and Healing in a time like this. Thank you Johnny for your dedication and sacrifice. May you shine down brightly upon your family. God Bless those that wait to see you again.
We will always remember and promise to always put a hand forward to help those who live with the effects of war!
