Katherine and Susan, we are so sorry to hear that John passed! I always enjoyed talking to him and will truly miss him. There is nothing more important than family and you will always be part of the Weaver family.
With our love.

Katherine, I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my Mother in August.
My husband just had hip replacement yesterday and we just got home, so I won't be able to come down, but I will keep you in my prayers.

John was a great friend and it was always so good to see you two.
We missed you at the class reunion, but maybe we will meet again.

Love and Prayers.
Clara Hackney
