Not sure what to say?

I met him at Myrtle Beach SC years ago such a nice man. Very respectful of women.
We met a couple times for lunch.
Sad to see you've left us. We will meet again.
Love you my friend

John Combe was my favorite Hometown guest and he was so blown away by what Ben and Erin did to the home he bought in that beautiful town of Laurel Mississippi I am so saddened to hear just recently after they aired the episode again that he died a few months after his home renovation was completed, he left a lasting impression, when he saw the picture of his father he couldn't hold back his emotion and it touch my heart, no matter who you are there's no place like home it truly is where the...

You are indeed a wonderful precious soul. Heartsmiles!

Just now seeing the Home Town episode with John Combe. I was drawn in and loved the fact that he did not care about costs, he wanted what he wanted. I aspire to be able to do that one day. You work hard all your life to be able to enjoy it, and his personality shows he did just that! I am one that feels I'm at an age now that starting over is not an option. That was before this episode with Mr. Combe. His final quote, "If you don't change, life is stagnant!" really grabbed my...
