    John was one of the kindest men I have ever known. Not only was he kind to all, he was steady in his faith to our Lord and Savior. When I lost my elderly mother and was hurting so deeply, John called and talked with me. He quoted 2 Corinthians 5:8-----"We are of good courage, I say, and are willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." From that point on, I was internally calmed and could clearly face the situation. Teresa, I am so very sorry for your loss. You and John were so good together and no doubt there will be a huge void. Hold onto the good memories and lean on God for comfort.
