Dear Lorna and Family; We were so shocked when we learned of John’s sudden passing. Seems like a few words are not enough so please turn your Bible to John 5:28,29. These verses talk of the resurrection John will receive. It is a wonderful thing knowing it is not the end for your dear loved one but just the beginning. God bless you all. All our love and sympathy, Delbert and Mary Weare.

Lorna, Pat, Robbie,& Family,
John was a dear and special person to all of us. Today the world is a little sadder — because we have lost a truly humble, decent and caring man. And in today’s times that is a great loss. He was a caring, loving, gentle, smiling giant of a spirit , and we will not soon forget him.So many of us felt honored to have had him touch our lives in some small way. I remember many good times spent with John, who could always make me laugh with his dry, quick wit and who could always hold my attention with his stories from ” the old days”. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all your extended family at this time. Remeber always that John’s spirit lives on in each of you; your smiles, your touches, and your very being.
Ashley, Carolyn & girls
