I last got to see John this past summer on my drive to New York. I stopped through NC so we could meet up. We spent the afternoon walking around the mall catching up, and hanging out in the parking lot just letting time go by, happy to be hanging out in person and not just talking through facetime and calls. It sucked being so far apart but I still feel like we had a good bond. Going to miss him like hell, but I'm glad he is finally with Ashley again and both are looking down on us.

I met John like 4 yrs ago. He just happened to walk over one day at the house and after that day he became such a good friend of mine and my son. Him and my boy Lucas would ride around together hang out Lucas always talked so good about John. John was one of those people that would do anything he could for you. I saw John about a month ago at the China King we sat and talked about things when we hung out. He seemed so happy and in good spirits. This is so hard to believe he was a blessing and had the best Heart ever. Buddy you are gonna be truly missed. Fly high sweet man until we meet again. Love You my friend!!!

You helped me so much when me and my son needed someone there for us. You didn't hesitate to help and you never asked for anything in return. You will always be in our hearts. My family and I will never forget you John! May you rest easy and fly high.

John was always there for you, even if his life was falling apart. He was always there to lift you up. I’ve been friends with John since we were youngins, kickin it in the 1st grade. We went through all of school together, from W.A.Bess to Cramerton to Forestview. He was my very first “boyfriend” and was one of the very few people in my circle in the 6th grade. And we continued to remain friends throughout adulthood. He was one of the few who got me onto my road to recovery from addiction, and he never gave up on me throughout it all. And for that, I will be forever grateful. I’m going to miss him deeply and he will always be with me in my heart. RIP molla 🖤
