Many prayers to the Lassiter family as you lay to rest the earthly body of John. But celebrate his life today tomorrow an on for the great husband, father, grandfather , family member and friend he was. Heavens circle has just gotten and little bigger now.
I thank God for being able to get to know John if only for a few visits. And never forget his love bringing brother Carl back to Tennessee for mom’s farewell in 2002.
