|On John's 25th Anniversary in heaven, let the memory of John be with us forever!|
Our Brother John !
Who is to say, and if they did who would believe it true, that these vessels we occupy and our earthly presence are not what we are about, but just a pause, a grounding place, a place to regroup our energies as we continue the more meaningful part of our existence.We don’t understand it and we can’t understand it because our bodily form is inadequate in its design and capabilities. We see loved ones suffer with broken, damaged bodies. This is their inadequate earthly design not their essence and who they are that are flawed. We see other loved ones that are full of energy, the John’s of the world that emanate what we perceive as living life and bringing excitement to all those around them. We love these people, we enjoy their presence, they are like the electrons that bounce around and when they come in contact with others they excite them causing a temporary chain of reactions. So we get some excitement for as long as that earthly being hangs around. Our essence, our souls, our energy, this is who we are, we are a loving, giving source, created in the image, an extension of a greater entity, some call God others have different names or beliefs as to what or who God is. Regardless, God, the name I choose, is an awesome entity, that we follow and look to for answers. Answers that we in this earthly form can’t obtain and if we did most of us would fear knowing them instead of embracing them. How do we know that there is more to us? How do we know that this existence is nothing more than a spec in time? It is because we have so many questions, because we feel so confused as to why we are here. If we didn’t feel this way we wouldn’t have a need to know, how the Earth was created, or how did the universe begin. We wouldn’t care. Why should we? After all we are only here for 90 years if we are lucky or unlucky for that matter. It is because we try so hard to feel like we belong to something and never really feel like we are… where we are suppose to be. We convince ourselves that we have found our place and reason for being in this life, but we are never truly at ease. Like bottled energy, waiting for its grounding phase to be finished so that it can get on with doing something more, being someplace better or different. A place where we can reunite with others and share our love, without confines of these vessels, our bodies. We gather in church to tell Jesus that we love him, and our loved ones like John that we miss them, that we haven’t forgotten them and we love them. As a group of souls and energies united we radiate to them, we radiate to each other. We gather to give each other hope and love in trying to endure our earthly pains. Brenda
"Can't believe it's another year gone by without you here with us, You and your family are always in my prayers, I have a 8 year old grandson named Dante and at his bedtime he always wants a story, I'm so glad that I had the years we had together as friends because he loves the stories of the times we had. Miss you John, Love your friend Ronnie"
"I have bought a 1970 yellow white and red GW invader, a yellow seadoo 1999 and a 22' 2005 searay. All with joy of keeping the memories Alive and hopes of passing on the love of the water we all shared and share now. I'm so happy to be fearless enough to venture out at 55 years old to teach my kids and keep my parents enjoying the water. It's alittle scary but exciting. I owe my sense of adventure and "don't give a shit attitude to just try to enjoy life and stay happy" to my brothers and John as the forerunner of risk takers.
Today on your birthday I am extremely sad. I haven't felt this sad in 31 years. I can't believe this one birthday after all that have come and gone has me so distraught. I'm not sure if it's normal. I'll assume so and perhaps with aging parents and realizations of getting older than I care to accept...it is normal. I'm going to try out my seadoo to shake the sadness and embrace memories of your stupid actions at sea. I'll always love and remember John, my family and all friends that share these memories. Love to all and a safe summer. Ps moms bday is the 28 th.
"Wow-happy Bday John -You'd laugh if you could see how we look!"
"Happy Birthday Bro,welcome to the 60 club,we will celebrate tonight"
"Gone but never forgotten , what a great friend you were you had the biggest heart miss you John RIP brother"
"John, another year gone by,still miss and will never forget you,hope all is great with you"
"A shout out to John's gang! So what did John's dad do this 30 th anniversary..., well he did something he always wanted to do and something John had done. Frank jumped.... Out of a plane ... 84 years young! The fruit don't fall far from the tree. I don't think dad sees it though. Lol. Love life,live life and most of all enjoy life. Remember it's just one dimension of existence so find the time to do something you wouldn't think of at this age but always wanted to do. Pole dancing for the fat and wrinkled sounds fun!!"

"Unending love for one of the most beautiful people I have ever been blessed with in my life. Over the past 30 years I can truly say that I've known a treasured handful. They enter your life and you know you are touch and changed for the better forever. They are with you all the time and never leave you thinking that they are gone from your life. I feel this way about John. I know he is taking care of matters that only the unknown intervention has the ability to assist in. My love for my unseen silently strong brother is as great as the love I have for my brother that I can still embrace and speak the words...I love you, I miss you, and get a reassuring, " so do I" back. My brothers are mine for all eternity and I treasure everything seen and unseen, past, present and future to come. My life is richer and crazier for having them and I wouldn't want for any two others. Enjoy the ride John. I miss you deeply and bought a GW invader this summer to reminisce of carefree youthful times. See you on our bay John, and friends. Love Brenda Jean"
"Miss you Buddy!!"
"I always remember how much you enjoyed life. You always had a great time no matter the situation, John. You've taught us, life is short, your example is one we should live by. You will always be missed."
"I wish you were still with us. Your anniversary reminds me of how quickly we can lose the ones we love. May your soul rest in peace John."
"Happy Birthday Big Brother , when I say brother I meant it from all of us. Brenda, Glenn, Frankie, Matt, Cat, Vito, Ronny , Janie, Joe, Bobby, Francine and many, many more.

""""By being here you have communicated that you care.
This gesture is of immeasurable value, and speaks significantly
about the impact of the life we commemorate."""""
"I just wanted to say your memorial is touching. I pray God will continue to strengthen you. I hope, you can also take comfort in Revelation 21:4: "[God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more…the former things have passed away."""
