Steph,
There is a wonderful saying that I mentioned to you last night and here it is from Christopher Robin - If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

We will continue to pray for you.

Such a sad occasion. All I can think about is how he turned heads when he walked into our little inbound and customer service department back in the day. We think he knew it too. You could catch that little grin that he couldn't hide. Rest In Peace. Deepest Sympathy to the family and friends.

Stephanie-We will always think of Big John with fondness and a big smile on his face! He was a wonderful man, a good friend, and had a great sense of humor and a kind heart. To meet him was to be his friend. The measure of a man can be seen in the friends he leaves behind. Big John left so many friends behind to miss him.
