Anna Lee our prayers and thoughts are with you. God is so good to us and he will never leave us alone even in the times we may not feel His love. He loves us. John will be missed, I think about how we spent a whole semester in college together. I learned a lot that year and never will forget it. John has always put others before himself. That's where we see God at work. Hold to God unchanging hand. He shall lead you to a peaceful place. Psalm 23:1-3 The lord is my shepherd and I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in the path of righteousness For His name's sake.

John will truly be missed. He was kindhearted, hardworking and meek. Meekness in today’s society it is look at as being weak. But, John possessed the particular Fruit of the Spirit; he simply had strength under control. He let go and let God handled whatever situation would go through. “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5).
