  1. John absolutely adored his Granddaughter, Addilyn. They both loved playing with and in water! They always had the best times together. We will all make sure Addilyn knows how much her Papap loved her. John was a loving and kind man. I was privileged to have been his wife for over 38 years. We travelled a lot especially our first ten years married as John was still in the AirForce. Traveled to Washington State, Texas, Mississippi, Michigan, Maine, Vermont, Maine, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, most thanks to the Air Force. We had a wonderful life until this cancer crept in and took so much away……mostly my dearly loved John. We were grateful for the time we had left, I just wished there was less pain for my love….. I miss him so very much. I hope when it’s my turn he’ll be waiting for me and he’s the first I see. That would be lovely. Thank you so much for your kind words, your hugs and kisses, the lovely flowers, and your sadness at everyone’s loss since John left us. But he is whole and in the glory of the Lord. What other better place could my love of my life be?!! No more pain, no more difficult pills to swallow my love. Save me spot, and in no time I pray to be at your side again in the glory of Our Lord. I miss you and will always love you……you are the love of my life, and I have been blessed. Til we meet again my dear John…..Cindy

  2. We are very grateful to our daughter Alana and all the help she has given us emotionally and physically…..Thanks also goes to Alana’s husband, Scott Moore, and our son in law whom we couldn’t have given John such good care at home without everyone’s help. I am so happy he is no longer in pain, and he is surrounded by family who have gone before him now. He will be missed everyday by us all. But we are grateful for the time we had with him. Thank you to all of you who gave us love and support and made this journey with us that was all about John. He was a wonderful man. I shall love you all of my days, John, and will look for you when it’s my time to pass. You will always be my forever love…Cindy. You were the best friend and the best father. Our hearts will always be filled with love for you. Til we meet again…
