My favorite cousin, I know time has not been kind to us all. We enter this world alone an not knowing where we are and what will be expected of us. You met that challenge an everything there after. You have a family any man would be proud of, you leave a legacy that will continue through time.
I hadn't seen you since this picture. That was a day of fun and laughter and that's how I will remember you always. You were like a brother to me growing up.
I miss you John, you will be in my heart forever.

There has never been a way for me to adequately thank you for being such a positive, loving role in my life. Some of my happiest memories are with my Ofeldt family. You were always ready with a story or a joke, a laugh, and a fun time. I love you Johnny. ❤️ Until we meet again. Rest in Peace my dear cousin. ❤️❤️❤️
