I met John and one of his brothers when I was his father's nurse., at Montgomery General Hospital. John kept the nursing staff in laughter as did his dad. We were constantly calling John over things his dad was doing; he sneaked and lit a cigarette, hid it in a paper towel roll, which caught on fire, he threw it in trash can which caught on fire! John's 2 children and him along with my twin daugjters at the time had a lot of good times. John, I sm so sorry for all the suffering you have went through in the last 10 plus years. You are now in heaven, that is the ultimate goal. You are pain free and now at rest.You touched peoples's lives in a wonderful way. You made everybody feel important! John Michael & Bridgette I pray God has sent the comforter to you. Your family and his friend Sherry are in my prayers. Love Lisa.

My dear brother in law Johnny, we will miss you so very much. You were a very kind and caring person. You would literally give someone the shirt off your back if they were in need. Your pain is finally over and you are with God and your parents. You were welcomed into God's kingdom. Praise be to God, the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen!
