  • He was one of my moms best friends. One of the sweetest guys you'd ever meet. Loved to travel and tell me about his grandchildren. -Lindsay Hill

  • John you were my best friend for years and I know how much you love me and of course Lindsay. You were a traveling man and came to spend time with me whenever you had a chance. I don't remember a cross word between us that's because they were all good loving and caring. If I could have said good bye one last time I wouldn't want it. I want to believe the love we felt will always be in my heart never to be forgotten. No goodbyes just I love you my best friend.

  • Too many memories to remember. Just wanted to say sorry for your loss from Skeeter's son

  • You were a man of many talents and will always be in my heart. Love ya John! My heart goes out to all of John's kids.
