Although Uncle John has passed to the other side, his spirit will live on in Aunt Beck, his children and grandchildren. He will live on in the memories, and stories, of his family, siblings, in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends. We are all better for have known him. He will be greatly missed. Uncle John, see you on the other side, God Bless. Love you!

John was a good man, through and through. His position at church best spoke of who he was, "keeper of the sign." John was the sign, the symbol of Christian values--kindness and love of one another. We will never forget him.
