Al and I are deeply saddened by the light that shone through Mr John and his presence was such a blessing to all who knew him. I pray you take comfort in knowing he is in a better place with all his friends and family that went before him. I will truly miss his sweetness and smiling face.

Praying for you all! I loved Mr. John's sweet spirit and smile. When he ushered at Shiloh, he always made his way to me for an encouraging word or a hug! He's enjoying his rewards in heaven now! Love you all!
