We are so very sorry to hear of John’s passing. May the memories you have of your brother/husband/dad and papa carry you all through the difficult days ahead, and always. We are here for you, just know that! You are all in our prayers. Godspeed, John.

Dear Mary, Michael and Phillip, we were so saddened to hear of the passing of John. Being neighbors for 26 years we were going to miss you due to your plans to move South. I know it’s so difficult to understand times like this but may your faith carry you through this. We pray for God’s peace that passes all understanding
comfort you during the days ahead. You and John were wonderful neighbors and for that we thank you. If there is anyway we can be of service and help, we are here. With love and prayer, Johnnie and Jackie Pullins.

Dear Mary, Mike and Philip. So very very sorry to hear of John’ s passing. He was a awesome man. Mike. Megan sends her sympathies. As Philip Alex sends his. I remember John watching Alex while I taught Sunday school. John was so good helping Special Olympics. And Growth enterprise. He was proud of you all and loved you very much. Deepest sympathies.
