Condolence & Memory Journal

Our deepest sympathy we share with you all; Wava and all the children and grandchildren. Working with John and Jack brings up so many good memories. May God's comfort and peace be with each of you. We loved to see John come recently in the evenings to our church.

Extending my sympathy to Wava and the family of John. It was my pleasure to work with John for close to 10 years and then to reconnect and see him periodically in recent years when he visited occasionally for evening worship at Graafschap Church.

Our deepest sympathy to Aunt Wava and cousins. Uncle John was surely one of the good guys to all of us. I believe he lived life to the fullest and surely he could be the "I" in the poem, "I think I climbed the tallest tree That other poets missed. In fact there is no part of life, I've not embraced and kissed!" by Crystal Denton Nelson. God bless you Uncle John from your ring bearer 70 years ago,
