Two little miracles were born the day John went to be with the Angels- He might not be here to see them but, he is with them in Spirit, as he is with ALL of us who were so lucky to Love him and be Loved by him.
I am so sorry for your family’s loss. I did not know John but only from having Marisa as a Facebook friend. He must have been pretty special to have raised such a sweet and caring daughter. A wife lost her husband, siblings lost their father, friends lost a special person. Your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers. Sounds like God gained a pretty special man. God Bless
Your work here is done John. Be with the Angels and R.I.P.
Love you Cuz
Our sincere condolences and deepest sympathies… Love, The Thompsons

I always looked forward to that phone call as it always made me smile. Thank you John for having enough love in your heart for me!! You were a good man.. I love you!
