    John was a great brother in law, he would always cook for family functions and never miss one. He make you laugh when you were not in a good mood. He will be missed by all the family. Rest in peace dear John.

    I am so sorry to hear of John’s passing. Sue and family, I pray that God comforts you in your time of sorrow. I only meant John at your Mom and Dad’s 50 Anniversary, but Herb and I enjoyed his company very much. Love you my dear cousin.

    May to Lord bring you and the family much comfort and peace during this time of your great loss. Having recently gone through this too, you have my total understanding and support . I’m still numb since losing Earl. I miss him greatly and you will John too. But it’s a great comfort to know that they are no longer suffering and that we will see them again. If there’s anything I can do to help comfort you please feel free to call me. I just wish we didn’t live so far apart. I don’t believe that we ever met John and I haven’t seen you since Uncle Wes and Aunt Marg’s 50th wedding anniversary party and I can’t even remember when that was. Some time in the late 80’s or ’90’s I think. When this is all over please take some time and come see the rest of the family here in Texas and let your three Texas cousins love on you and comfort you. Remember all three of us have been there before you.. Much, much love and many many prayers.
