Uncle John
It broke our hearts to lose you, Uncle John
But you never went alone, for part us went with you the day God called you home.
A million times we will miss you, a million times we will cry for you, Uncle John.
If only the love we had for you, could have been enough to save you, you would still be here with us, Uncle John.
To the gravesite we will travel, where all your ones will surround you.
Our final heartache, will be as turn and walk away.
As we leave you there, Uncle John!
If tears could build a stairway and memories could make a lane!
We would all walk right up to Heaven and bring you home
We love Uncle John and Forever in our Hearts!

So many beautiful memories of my Uncle John. Some of my fondest are as a little girl, playing in his backyard with Deanna. Uncle John was almost always working on something under his patio. The first words out of his mouth whenever he saw me were “Becky Sue!” Even though Sue is not my middle name, I loved it anyway. Uncle John was always so sweet and thoughtful. I still have all the wood crafts he made for me; a FSU bulldog bookend when I was in college, a wooden paper weight for my first year of teaching and the Christmas stocking yard decorations he made for my kids. Every Christmas those stockings go up in my yard.
Aunt Vicky and family, you have my deepest condolences . Uncle John will be greatly missed.

Great Grandpa John was an Amazing & Loving man. I will forever keep the memories of our conversations, having coffee, watching westerns, talking about sports and the way his face lit up when he saw the 4 of us girls in my heart. My girls were so incredibly blessed to have such a Wonderful man to call Great Grandpa. They hold him very close to their hearts and we're always so excited for both Great Grandparents to come watch them dance at recitals, powwows or talent shows. It meant the world to them to see you both there. We Love you both so very much.

Sending my condolences to you Aunt Vicky and the whole family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I’m very blessed to have lived next door to you and my Uncle John while growing up. We always knew when we were having a backyard party to make sure to tell you and My uncle John to come over..... DJ request would be “Kansas City”. And without any hesitation Uncle John would be out there dancing. May he Rest In Peace.
