Hi Memaw,

We love you and are heartbroken by this sad news, but we know John has gone to Heaven where he is enjoying the rewards he's earned throughout life. I will always remember the love he had for us, his warm smile, and our mutual fondness for a game of putt-putt golf. We hope to come see you soon and we'll pray for all the family in the meantime.


Brian Stephens
