Jr I thank you for everything you've done for me and my family. You were always the First one to jump in and help with whatever it was. You made me see there is still good people in this world. The world will be a little darker now without your face smiling to brighten it up. Now god has another angel to help guide other troubled souls struggling to find there way. John you will be forever missed.

Rip john I will always rememeber the good times we shared. You were always like a brother to me even if we didn't talk for awhile. You were such a kind soul and always upbeat. You treated every person with respect. Ill never forget you I don't think anyone ever will.

Not just a good man, but a rare soul. He loved without limits and felt the pain of others as though it was his own. He never spoke a mean word to anyone and there was not a single person he failed to cheer up .
It is not time, but our ability to love, care, and respect those around us that marks a good life. Junior embodies all three of these characteristics. An exquisite man that lived through his heart. A heart that knew depths many of us can not even begin to understand.
His love was pure and unselfish. Anyone who felt the depth of his heart will remember him with love. We should all strive to care the way that Junior did.

We had only met John a handful of times however we know how much he was loved by Bj, Leanna, and Amy through their stories and memories they have shared.

I remember meeting John for the first time as the young man who sat on my back porch one evening as he visited us with Bj and Leanna. John's face full of pride and his heart full of joy as he told me all about his love for his son Bentley. 

 I will smile each and every time I think of John helping Leanna search for clues and count every item at Leanna & Bj's baby reveal in an attempt to determine the gender of their son before the actual reveal.

Our hearts aches deeply for John's family. We pray that peace comes quickly to their lives so that it is easier for them to remember all their memories with more smiles than tears.

I remember first time I met Jr.he was dating my granddaughter at the time. He celebrated Christmas one year with our family met about 20 family members and everyone liked him right away. He was one of those people even though we just met him we felt like he was part of the family. Love and prayers to all of his family. God Bless You Jr.
