John I have so so many good memories with you. I can say by far my fav is when Alicia would be gone or out taljing with friends you and ur crazy self would always set her up with some sore of scare just to make everyone laugh. I remember you hanging that chucky doll on the other side of the door so when she opened it she would scream she was petrified of that doll. As dio as we heard that scream we all laugh knowing or wondering what your crazy self was up to this time. You will be missed dearly john forever and always in our hearts.

Johnny, my big brother how I miss you so. I am thankful you did everything for me that Dad should have done. you was there when it counted the most. this is so hard on all of us but I will keep your legacy alive. MY favorite memory is when we was dancing at my wedding for the father daughter dance and you pulled me close knowing I needed it and a good cry. ill never forget the words you whispered in my ear so no one could hear. or the fact you sheltered my face from people seeing my meltdown. I love you sooo sooo much and I miss you. my soul left with you.
