  1. There are no words to express how saddened I am with the loss of such a dear longtime friend. We shared so much throughout the years the happy times as well as the sad ones. She fought the good fight and I always admired her strength and her faith in God throughout it all. To John, JJ, and Kristen and your families you will all be in my thought and prayers as you try to deal with your loss. Heaven has certainly gained another angel.

  2. Thank you, Denise for your friendship with my mom. You guys certainly go way back. I know she appreciated your friendship and all the delicious cookies you baked for her. She certainly was strong and full of faith. The strongest person I know.

  3. Dear John and Family,
    We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your dear wife, Debbie. She was such a kind and precious lady, and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, etc. She is now resting in God’s Perfect Peace. Our deepest sympathy, thoughts, and prayers to you and all your loved ones.

  8. Gammy, I miss you. It still feels like you are still here. I wish you were. I will always remember a few things. One is the time we were in the mall too long and we got locked in and we had to go out through the employee’s only door. Another time I remember is our sleepovers. I loved them all ❤ I remember when we used to put the fan on and blow bubbles. That was fun! I remember our last sleepover. We painted, colored, and watched TV together. I remember every time you came over and you would remind me that when I was little I would hit you and Mama when you would sing “Jesus Loves Me” because I thought it was time for bed. I love you. I am going to give you Mr. Elephant. You were the best Gammy. I know you didn’t think you were a good Gammy because you were sick, but you were the best Gammy because you were My Gammy! I will always love you, Gammy. Your little Pookie, Kylie Jo

  9. We never got to meet you. That is our loss. You raised a wonderfully, kind young man. We all live Pastor JJ and his entire family. They are a true blessing to so many in our community. I pray for comfort for your family.

  10. To John,Kristin, J.J. And the grandchildren. Debbie and I go way back to the days when we road to work together in the OR at Weiton Hospital.

  13. To my Mom, Words cannot say how much I miss you. I know that you are with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Through your death I have become even closer with God because one day I want to be reunited with you. I thank you for everything that you have instilled in me to become the man I am today. When I think back upon my life, you where always there for me. Whether we agreed upon everything it could not overtake the love that I had for you. You will always be in inspiration to me because of the faith you had in God. As sick as you where but your faith never wavered. I just want you to know that I love you and I will love you forever. God bless mom, we will be reunited one day. Your loving son J.J.
