"Thank you to all who visit here.  In doing so, you are helping to keep John's memory alive.  The few words written in haste in the obit above, could in no way capture the spirit of his life...that would take a book because each day had a story behind it.  He was a Dad and Husband to be proud of...working hard and never giving up!  No words can explain our loss.  We miss him still...we always will.
Leilani and Hillary ♥♥♥"

"Happy Birthday John, you are "forever missed" by so many people.
I think about you often when I am in Margate.  You always made me laugh."

"Dear Leilani, this is Renee Liss and I want to tell you how sorry I am for you, your daughter and for all of his friends ( which Iinclude myself) on the loss of John. I visited him over a week ago at Penn and he was his same anxious self, ready to get out of the hospital and get back to work with Karl. He looked like his old happy self and I was able to make him laugh a little. He said you and your daughter were on your way and I knew you would straighten him out and make him take it easy. I will miss his smiling face driving his truck through Margate, never hesitating to stop for a minute to say hello. I am happy to have called him my friend and my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your daughter."

"My home away from home was at the Munyon's throughout my High School years.  Spending time with my "Sister" Hillary and "Mom and Dad Munyon" left me with memories that can still make me laugh 'till I cry.  Always a good time and lots of love and especially laughter.
"Dad Munyon" will be missed to say the least.  Thank you for the memories.  My love and many hugs and kisses to Hillary and "Mom"."

"To the family of John Munyon.  My condolences go out to the family.  From reading about John Munyon's life. I can tell he is loved and will be missed very much. When one loses a loved one in death it is very painful.  One way to get comfort from such a loss is by turning to the scriptures.  The scripture that I like is at Revelation 21:4.  It says: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.  The former things have passed away".  The Bible speaks of reuniting us with our loved one by means of the resurrection hope.  If you would like to know more about what the Bible says about this hope of a resurrection and the comfort that the scriptures bring.  Please go to www.jw.org.  You can search for any answers for any question you may have."
