To my beloved Uncle John,
After so many years of service to the public your body grew tired but your soul will live on in our hearts.
I will always have such fond memories of you at the holidays at Grandpa’s and the summers at Silver Lake growing up with you looking after us kids.
I’m sure you will be welcomed into the Lord’s home with all our family waiting to greet and embrace you with love.
