Not sure what to say?

My association with John was on the U. of AZ. baseball diamond. My memory is of John being a real sparkplug and full of energy. He was a dedicated team player and someone to emulate. In addition, he was always a true gentleman. May he rest in peace.

Sorry for your loss may you draw comfort from Gods word at HOSEA 13:14 L Ohio

Sorry to hear of John's passing. At North High School he was my husband's dear friend and best man at our wedding in May, 1956. They shared a great love of the game of baseball with John excelling on the University of Arizona team and Jim Brock ending up as head baseball coach at rival Arizona State University. Unfortunately their work in different parts of the US didn't allow much contact in later years but did not diminish their friendship or great memories.

My deepest condolences. Death of a loved one is never an easy thing to go through. Just remember you are not alone. Isaiah 61: 2 "...To comfort all who mourn" God is right here to help you.

To the Colyer Family: My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends during this difficult time. I hope that the promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 can bring comfort. Knowing that there's a hope for the ones we have lost in death can be so reassuring.
