  1. candleUncle John, I know since Aunt Lee passed that the only place you wanted to be was with her so now as much as I’m gonna miss you it brings me peace to know that you are together again with the love of your life!! I will miss our visits, our laughs, Leah pulling pranks on you just because you’d go along with anything she told you to do but mostly I will just miss you sitting here with me talking about Aunt Lee and all your silly stories, I always thought you were supposed to be my father because in so many ways we were so much alike. I’m gonna miss you so much!! RIP and give Aunt Lee a kiss from Jenny. Xoxo

  2. Uncle Johnny,

    My grandmother’s Son-shine. My mother’s beloved baby brother. My grandfather’s handsome son. The Uncle always chasing and tickling us cousins, dancing and making us laugh!
    Your heart was generous, loving, open, and fun. Our family would’ve never been the same without you!
    I have so many personal memories of how fortunate I was to have had an uncle like you. Fourth of July’s have never been the same!! Every time our back porch door swung open and we heard your voice call out, Nanny would smile wide with joy. Her boy was home.
    Well, now you are home with so many lost loved one’s, especially your great love, Aunt Lilla.
    Your pride for your daughter, son-in-law, and your grandchildren gave you peace while waiting to be with your true love.
    Our last talk recently, is a treasure and a Blessing I will hold dear for the rest of my life.

    Rest In Peace, my gentle Uncle. We forever love you.

    Until we meet again!
    Pud, Chris, Christopher and Ava
