I know how hard it is to lose your dad💔. My thoughts and prayers are with you all through this difficult time, I hope you find comfort in knowing so many others are thinking of you.

Memories of sleep overs when the family lived on Main Street. I sure will miss his smile and that sweet kiss on the cheek he would give me.

He will live on through all of you and has left a great legacy for the Teague family to cherish. Gone but certainly not forgotten!

God bless🙏
Love to all❤️❤️

So very sorry to hear the sad news of John’s passing. He was such a wonderful man. I spent many weekends there as a child. I treasure all the memories I have there. John was always so kind to me. He once said to me while staying the night “ what’s one more?” He will be greatly missed. My deepest condolences to the entire family. ♥️
