|Let the memory of John's bright light and caring spirit be with us forever|
"Today would have been John's 58th birthday. John, you're more alive in my heart than ever. May eternal bliss, Divine peace and perfect wisdom be yours. I remember you with love, especially on this day."
"We all face the challenge of finding meaning for our lives. It is so difficult to break out of comfortable patterns, even to move toward greater joy and fulfillment. John's life brought him formidable challenges and he overcame them, all the while carrying his cross. John fashioned an unconventional life whose beauty I did not see until I walked his path these recent days. I am humbled by John's ability to love, even as his days often lacked joy and comfort. I used to pray that he would truly feel the joy of being loved unconditionally by his Savior and that that light would illuminate his heart. Now that he has passed at the all-too-young age of 57, I am confident that his spirit soars on the love of the Divine.
John, I love you. Your life was a greater success than you ever believed. I'm grateful to be your sister and I cherish your memory."
"My dearest brother John..
You were an inspiration and lifted everyone more than you ever knew. The humble spirit, kind words and acts of love showed to others while you were suffering greatly is a testament to your Faith. God brought you home early to spare the worst so I cannot selfishly wish that you stayed any longer. My hope and prayer is that you are in His loving arms now and forever.
13 As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of mortals is like grass,
they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.
I love you, miss you and am so proud and fortunate that you were my brother."
