Linda I don’t know if you will receive this since it is so late. We just heard of Johnnies passing. I was shocked to hear of this since he was so young. Deepest sympathy to you. David, Beth, Michelle and Sandy.

I was sorry to read about the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to these scriptures [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah chapter 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which says in part that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, by swallowing up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.
Sincere Condolences.

Linda…I had not seen your precious son since our boys were preschoolers. I wish we had kept in touch. I can’t imagine your pain and hope your memories and faith will sustain you. You have had more than your share of grief and my heart hurts for you. I hope we can get together sometime in Oct when I will be in Ohio.

John and I were great friends. He was a caring person who loved and respected his family. I remember when his father passed and how he and his dad were best of friends. I regret losing touch with him over the years. He was my freshman roommate at West Liberty and I have great memories of those times. I regret not being able to attend his memorial today and sharing in the memories with those who knew and loved him. I remember this quick wit his “Impersonations” and his infectious smile.. And his talent to make those around him laugh. Rest in peace, John. You have left your earthly troubles behind. I am sure you and your dad somewhere are rejoined and are ‘cutting it up as we speak. The world is a lesser place without him.

Dear Linda and Family:
I honestly have no words that can express how very sorry I am to hear of John’s passing. He was a very special person and one of the most personable I have ever met. I remember the first time I met John, we were having dinner at the same restaurant when we met; then the next day I believe he told you my name and it was so funny that you already knew me and my brother Lynn. We laughed at what a small world it really is. John was a very sweet person with a big heart. I know that you meant the world to John as he spoke of you often and said what a great mom you were and how very much he loved you. I hope this gives you some comfort in knowing how very special you were to John and will always
be. John will be sadly missed by everyone’s life that he touched. I know he will always hold a special place in my heart.

So sad to hear of the loss of John. Many good memories of playing pick-up games of basketball, working summers with him as youth supervisors for the dept of highways, and shared rides with him up Rt. 88 to West Lib. Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.

What a SHOCK it was to get an email from Kenny Miller the other day to inform me about John’s death. While it’s always depressing when one of my friends leaves this earth, it’s even more so when the deceased is younger besides being a great guy. I’m sure John enjoyed his brief time here, but he deserved so much more. My thoughts and sympathy go out to all of his family and many friends. I’m sure as a teacher and coach, he helped many more than he realized become better at sports and as human beings..
