So very sorry Mary for the loss of your John! May God bring you peace and grace.

Our condolences to you, Mary.. May John RIP with his Lord and Saviour and all that went before him..

John was my best friend of 35 awesome years. He was so much fun to be around and hang out with. A wonderful man of God and dear husband to Mary. He’s walking and dancing in Heaven praising Jesus as he did so many times here on earth. His faith is now sight. I will miss you deeply, my brother. I can’t wait to see you again in Heaven.

It was a honor to know John and work with him as well.No matter your day when he walked into Walmart he was sure to bring a smile to your face and a good chuckle to.May you rest in peace.

RIP John you were a sweet man to work with! Praying for you all! You’re no longer suffering!

Such an amazing guy; always so happy and so nice. I am happy that I was able to work with John and Mary when I did. So sad to hear of his passing. Prayers go out to his family.

I have many fond memories working at Woodhaven Walmart with John & Mary. I’m so sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with Mary and the family.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Thoughts are with you Mary.
