  2. Karen and Kids,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. We were unable to join in the celebration of his life this morning, but know we were with you in spirit

  3. Big John, man were you like a father to me. When God made you, he did so in such a fashion that it showed what a godly man does with a wife and kids. You told me once that I was like a kid of your own, and man did you prove it when I did some of the stupid things I did. I love you and will always remember the talks we had and the good moments we shared. Rip Big John.
