My dad states in his writing that I was like a nephew to John: I would also call him my inspiration. Even though I had known John since my birth year in 2001, I didn't become especially close with both him and Amy until around 2014, when I started to assist them with the humane society. That was the start of a special and unforgettable friendship between us. John was always chill and you could discuss virtually anything you wanted with him. He was a very wise, compassionate, gentle, and caring soul. He never judged, and if he had a problem, he would never yell or get angry, he would work with you and actually try to fix the issue at hand. He always tried to help and before he passed, he offered some advice about school and life that I will always remember about not letting things get to you and just being concerned with what's always in front of you. John was probably the best loyal, helpful, and funny husband to amy that I have ever seen. He and Amy had the most ideal and inspirational relationship together and I hope to model that one day myself. He had a great sense of humor and always tried to make the best out of a bad thing: you could always tell by that laugh of his. John was a brother, a father, a husband, and a friend to everyone. To me, he was a role model: a hard worker, a devoted husband, humorous, smart, caring and always held a good attitude that made everyone feel better. I do feel sad as our last day together wasn't the best as I was irritated about some trivial thing in current perspective and wasn't in the best mood and that will always hurt to be my last memory with him, but that memory is far outweighed by the many fun and positive ones I shared with him and Amy. I will do my best to honor his memory by modeling his personality and taking care of Amy. I will certainly say that I will always miss him, but if I had to choose a closing sentence, It would be this: he wouldn't want us to cry because he passed, he would want us to smile as we remember.

I will always remember John's laugh and sense of humor. He was like an Uncle to my son, Jake, and felt like a special member of my family as well. We forever will remember the wonderful memories shared while sitting outside on the Pastore's back porch, assisting John and Amy with Henrico Humane Society's Pet Adoptions, and hanging out with them with our other family, the Kolsters, in Powhatan. Jake and I feel the loss of not being able to have more time to spend with John. Our thoughts and prayers are with Amy and Jessie. With our Love, Jim and Jake Andelin
