Uncle David and Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. Words are never adequate at moments like this. JR will be missed by me and lots of family and friends for sure. He and I have always been close and we still hung out from time to time. He sure knew how to crack a joke and make me smile. I remember celebrating his 21st birthday with him along with many other special occasions and celebrations. I'll miss him for sure. May God watch over you and help you find the strength to endure through this most difficult time. Sending our love and prayers,
Angela and Waylon Dennis

John was a wonderful young man who touched many people's lives.
He loved life and everyone he met to the fullest each and every day.
I will miss him, we became very close when I handled all his
advertising at The Tribune-Star for many years.
Heaven has truly gained another beautiful Angel, rest in peace
my friend.
