" You have my deepest condolences for your loss of John . He seemed like a
wonderful man, such positive comments from all. Death is truly an enemy of all of us. Our loving heavenly father Jehovah knows the pain you are in and has promised a wonderful hope of a resurrection soon to come. That promise can be found in the Bible book of Revelation in chapter 21 and verses 3,4. "

"Never knew his name was John but I was riding my bike home one day and some boys blocked my way. John was across the street and he came over and made them leave me alone. I was so thankful for his help. Think I was only in 7th grade or so at the time and often wonder what would have happened to me if he hadn?t been there. Thanks from the bottom of my heart lumpy. "
"The kindest high school kid I ever met. Worked hard for the football coaches. I?ll forever remember when his field goal kicking ability was recognized. Without his kick in Marshfield there is no undefeated season. 1975. Lumpy, you were a hero. "
