Not sure what to say?

To the family of John Williams,

Tonight, Charlie and I are with Martha and many friends of John at a gathering missing his great smile and warm hugs. We come together for the 10th year with at least eight of those with John. He was a good friend and one that always loved our fellowship and fun discussions about politics in Jacksonville. He was a great man and will be sorely missed.

With love and affection, Teala and Charlie Milton

John, We miss you especially at Christmas with the Power Club. Now that you are in a better place, say a good work for us to the Lord.
It's been a pleasure knowing you.

I WANT TO ADD A P.S.
JOHN WAS MY CONFIDANT FOR 26 YEARS. THE ONLY SECRET HE KEPT FROM ME WAS THIS. JOHN, WHO AM I GOING TO TALK TO NOW??? I WANTED TO TELL YOU I BECAME A NEW GRANDMA ON THE 5TH. LOVE, CHERYL

John has been a good friend of mine for 26 years. We met at Independent Life and shared so much in our long friendship. He was my "rain" buddy. We would follow a storm cloud until it burst and then sit in the rain. Also, we used to pig out on CJ's oysters and other times it was boiled peanuts. I just found out tonight John passed away. A lesson to be learned here: 2 weeks to not be in touch is a long time. I will miss John because he stuck by me through all of my foolishness...

OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH THE WILLIAMS' FAMILY. MAY YOU TURN TO GOD FOR GUIDANCE AND PEACE IN YOUR TIME OF NEED.

It’s always hard to say goodbye to Daddy’s, loved ones, and special friends. Today, I learned that we’ve lost all three. Friends that we make in life touch us in such a way that will forever make them special in our hearts. John, without exception, is one of the dearest friends I will ever have. He is the father of one of my life’s best friends and a member of a family that will forever be as dear as my own. He is well known by many for his good looks, wit, and charm but especially known...

My love and prayers are with your loved ones - until we all meet again.

Your long-time friend,
Earl Leggett

He isn't gone, he's just away. Think of all the happy memories you all shared.
