Uncle John was a sweet, gentle man who helped me tremendously when I was in the military service. Weekends were a true joy when he helped me escape from Fort Dix to Cherry Hill, New Jersey each week I was stationed there. He even provide me with civilian clothing.....yes! I only wish that he had lived closer to spend more time with him. I'm so glad that he got an opportunity to visit us, here, in Tennessee a few years back. Rest in peace, Uncle John
