I met John years ago while he was visiting his parent in Mtn home arkansas then had the pleasure of seeing him again this summer while he was down visiting his dad! He made me laugh so much and showed us his corn hole boards he made and let my grandchildren play after he showed them how to play! He would call me several times since going back home from his trip down to visit him dad , I am so sad to hear about y'all's loss as well as shocked! He was planning another trip down for October for his dads 90th birthday and it saddens me we won't be making the plans to celebrate Dons birthday!
I am happy to say he brought some sunshine to my life when joking and teasing me! He will be missed! God be with you all!
