Memories Timeline


  1. I have so many great memories with you. I especially loved our lengthy conversations, whether they were on the phone or in person. I love you Uncle John. Now you can rest. Until we meet again… Tricia

  2. candleRuthie, you and John were such good friends of parents. The ‘John’ stories always made me laugh. I think John was the 1st and only person to make my mom say the f word on your trip to Hawaii. May you find peace in Jesus during this most difficult time and remember all the fun and good times you have had over the many years you’ve had with John. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.
