John was a great neighbor and friend, and all of us neighbors are missing him so very much. We surround you with our love - Karla, Josh and Jackie, Caleb and Britt, Karen and family.
For a story about John, I'll tell the one about one time when we asked you and John to watch our house when we were going away. Somebody said something about if the house catches on fire, and John said, "We'll take pictures!" When we got past the surprise, we all laughed heartily, because it's true that that's exactly all you'd be able to do in that circumstance, but John's delivery of that line was so perfect that it just made everyone burst into laughter.
A number of years ago now, John's forging tools were put to good use by Josh and Mark, creating knives that are still treasured. John's guidance on that project, his interest, conversations, care, and kindness meant so much to us and Mark.
John was so smart, witty, funny, caring, and good. He was a good man, a good neighbor, and a good friend. We miss him tremendously and continue to pray for your healing and strength.
