Not sure what to say?

So sorry to hear about John. You were a wonderful person who we knew for a short while. You will be dearly missed.

Rest In Peace ! A wonderful father and a wonderful man you will be in many hearts and never forgotten , I’m sure have received your angel wings and be watching over your loved ones .❤

I always admired John’s marriage to my cousin Carol Ann. Both had seen the world- he in service and she an international stewardess. Yet both would be content to simply be together at a picnic in Mingo Park. Decades together and she still sparkled in his presence. Deepest condolences to Carol Ann, brother Harold Raymond, sons, cousins including Charlie, Gayle, families, and all blessed to have known John.

Our prayers and sympathies are with you and yours

John was such a great guy. My deepest sympathy and may he rest in peace.
