John was a wonderful person and always so nice to be with. He truly a good hearted Christian, who followed the words of Christ "Love one another as I have Loved You". I worked with John for several years, After I went to work at another place, I enjoyed spending social times with him for many years, May God Bless his family and continue to Bless John in Heaven.
