He was a complex guy. For those who heard him on the guitar, they would know there was a genius in there. I will certainly miss him and he will never be forgotten. He was special.

It is hard to believe that cancer has taken another long time friend. John and I had many deep conversations and enjoyed times of fellowship together. He may have put on a tough appearance on the outside, but he had a good heart. We are sorry that he has gone so soon from your lives, especially Amy and James. In one of our last conversations John spoke of the brevity of life. John thought highly of my mother. I recently read a Bible tract that my mother left at our house and the words from Psalm 103: 13 to 18 reminded me of our that conversation:

13Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

14For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

15As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

16For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

17But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

18To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
