I am so saddened by John’s sudden passing. I am sorry that we cannot attend John’s service on Friday. We will be thinking thoughts of love and support…and sending prayers your way for strength and courage as you adjust to life (as we know it) without John. Please take good care of yourself and family. Deb Pierce-Johnson

It is hard to believe that God called you to him so early. He must have wanted a kind soul by his side. Tim and I will miss you dear friend. Until we meet again. Tim/Terry
