Our dear uncle and father deserves a wonderful tribute. However, we appreciate in this unknown time with the COVID-19 pandemic that attending a visitation may not be in your best health interest.

It is hard letting someone go. But you have their memories. How they shared their time with you. Their laughter. But just knowing they are in God's opened arms. Makes it easy

John was truly a blessing to meet. I was his housekeeper at FHRC. He ALWAYS was so pleasant to encounter daily. He spoke highly of his late wife and daughter. He valued his niece Kay more than one could imagine. John, rest high on the mountain with Mrs.Betty and enjoy the view. RIH
