Thursday, January 10, 2019Uncle John, you were a man who could fill up any room with your smile and laughter. You could keep us entertained for hours with your stories. You always had the ability to come up with witty comebacks for any conversation. You always encouraged me to do my best and never settle for less than I deserve. You had one of biggest hearts and cared so much for others. Holidays won't be the same without you. I am grateful for the time we spent together, and the laughter we shared.

Thursday, January 10, 2019I always loved Uncle John. I feel like he went out of his way to make people feel liked, comfortable and appreciated. Or... maybe that was just his personality, naturally. Such a kind and respected person, I am so honored to have known him and stood in his presence. He will be dearly missed... Peace, lots of hugs, and comfort to his family and friends.

Tuesday, January 8, 2019I am blessed to have had men like my father, Grandpa Fred, and uncles Fred, John and Jerry as role models for me, not just in my youth, but in adulthood as well. I often looked to Uncle John in my times of need for guidance and counsel. He was a powerful force in my life and he will be greatly missed. I am grateful to have his lessons to reflect on as I navigate the trials and tribulations of the rest of my life. Uncle John, I love you. You set the bar high. When my time is up I hope I at least half the man you were.
