GODSPEED MY DEAR FRIEND, SAVE ME A PLACE I WILL BE HOME SOON TO MEET YOU.LOVE, HUGS, AND PRAYERS❤️🙏🙏🙏❤️
I was just a very close person to his grandson and got to know John very well throughout the years of spending time with both of them. He loved cars and motorcycles and I remember he wanted to be in Tennessee because he was tired of the cold weather. He was such a great man and a joy to be around, and I know his grandson loved him very much and took care of him to the best of his abilities and I know John loved him and the rest of his family dearly. He was a great man and left a wonderful legacy, and he taught me how to love Don Julio Tequila and we shared our love for muscle cars. I was a distant friend, but a friend non the less. He will be dearly, truly missed not only by me but the great legacy of friends and family that I know he held deeply in his heart. I send my most sincerest condolences to the family and I’m sending so many prayers.
By now you have reunited with your family, mine and friends. You will be missed. I can just see you zooming around Heaven on a Harley! Your children and grand son miss you so much! It was very hard to see you go, especially on Valerie….she is finding i very difficult… I hope she gets past the sadness and remembers the good times. You were a great dad to them!
