John,
I am going to miss our conversations on what you had learned in church each Sunday. You had finally taught me something I did not know the last Sunday. I can still hear your voice and you laughing because you said " I finally found sonething I could teach you." What you didnt realize John, you taught us alot while you were with us. You taught us family needs family and family is always there for each other no matter what. Before Jan 13, if someone would have asked me to sum John up in one word. I would have said aggrevating. Only because of all those weekend 7am calls from you with me asking " John call me later I am still asleep". Then you call back in 30 minutes to ask "Are you up yet?" But after Jan 13th, I was speaking to someone and they said "John was a humble man." I realized I didnt see this while you were with us. But no truer words were ever spoken about you. You did not have much, yet you would have given all you had to someone in need. You did not travel far, yet everyone knew you. You were content living in your man cave with just humbled necessities with Chips. Never complained about it. You love animals and you love your family. And we love you. I will miss you John. Go rest in peace. Hug Mama, Daddy and Shane for us. I love you John.

My brother John, you never know what was going to come to his mind and out his mouth. He made so many people laugh! It's going to be hard going down to Mama and Daddy's and not see him coming across the yard with his dog Chips. Thanks for all the laughs you have given us over the year. We love you and will miss you John!
