Terry and Family,

I was so sorry to hear of John's passing. He was a fine man and a good friend. John was a great old school common sense paramedic and Forsyth County was blessed to have him. He had a wonderful sense of humor and I have many good memories from our time at FCEMS. Please know that we are thinking of you all and keeping you in our prayers.
