Mr. Chris Boyd just sending you words of comfort... John was an awesome man I loved seeing him up at Riverwalk.. You were a good son.... I was his driver from Riverwalk when I used to bring him home every evening the last time I brought John home it was hard to see him that away but I know now that he is in the hands of God and he's got his right mind and he isn't in any pain he has a new body now....... I'm just glad he's at peace now....... will miss seeing his face... God bless you and continue to shine upon you and your family.
