I didn't hear of John's passing until sometime after. I was floored when I heard and still in disbelief. This wonderful family of truly awesome people have had so much tragedy in this life. It does make one want to question God. All that we can do is ---- " Trust in the Lord with all thine heart ; and lean not unto thine own understanding " My thoughts and prayers go out for you.
I know John from Golds Gym. He has made such an impact on my life as my friend. He is the kind of person that one can't help but respect and grow fond of with his witty humor. Part of getting to the gym was to catch my buddy in there. He would give me that grin, adjust his ball cap ( when wearing one) , lean back and say something clever ...... the way that he does. He proudly displays the love for his seven children. With all of his accomplishments I think his children are the most rewarding to him. I once saw a display of his serious side. We were in the gym goofing off a little, as usual. All of a sudden John's face looked as though he was extremely upset. He said nothing to us and bolted outside. As I looked on , Andy was getting out of the passenger side of a car at the front doors { At this time he was very ill. } John arrived just in time to help him stand. Then he put his arms around his father and hugged him gently, as if he were fine glass. The display of love was profound . Norma Rockwell would have broken out an easle and brush. I apologize for being so late with this. I am simply not to good at writing these things. At times , when I think of John , I come here to look at pics and read these memorials. I have a feeling that others do as well as he has so many friends and is loved by many. So maybe someone will read this although none of what I have said is a mystery. I don't , and won't speak of John in " past tense " because as long he is in our hearts, he is still with us.
