Grandpa John, you we’re part of the greatest generation, and I’m so grateful you got to meet your great grandchildren...I’m praying they turn out as humble, and kind as you were to me. I Love you so much.

How blessed I have been to have coffee with John, along with my Mom & Dad, Dick & Ellie McCalley and all the "Hardee's Gang"! John was so easy to engage in conversation and was so gentle and respectful. Such a faithful witness and I believe he is enjoying his reward!
