What a sweet, kind, funny, loving man was my uncle Johnny. He was my dad's uncle but only 2 years older so they were always more like brothers. He and my aunt Mary were two of my favorite people! I know they are happy to be together in heaven at the feet of Jesus!

The Jamestown Methodist Charge has lost a wonderful person in Mr. John. He and Mrs. Mary were big supporters of our 3 little churches. They both have left a big spot to fill. My condolences to the family. I know you are hurting today, but when I heard yesterday about Mr. John's passing it brought a smile to my face. I pictured Mr. John and Mrs. Mary together again with those wonderful smiles. God Bless you all.
