John was a good friend of mine. I am going to miss him very much. He was a very caring, friendly person. May he rest in peace.

I am so very sorry I cannot attend John's service on Wednesday. John would stop by my office every morning just to chat and say "Good Morning". He often shared stories from his younger days. He was proud of the life he lived. John was very much a respected leader here at New Hope. Know that our hearts are with your family as you lay John to rest.

John was a good man and a good friend. I'm going to miss him. I lived with John years ago on Gamma Unit at New Hope. I wish I could be with you tomorrow. John will be missed.

John we shared in many memories together! I will always remember your humor and talks of your childhood. We watched the Pacers together and always spoke about sports. May you rest in peace and always be remembered of the many fun times we shared at New Hope! Fly high John we will meet again. Love you buddy!
