    Today I am able to realize that John is at peace finally. He became a brother to everyone in the house. All the pranks, all the crazy jokes, and all the trouble he got in… He kept my job interesting that is for sure! He had a huge heart, and will be truly missed.

    So sadden by your leaving us. Knowing that you are done your fight is what I am holding onto . You didn’t even get to see what life had in store for you. I know God must have a special need for you. You were a special young man you just couldn’t see it . We will always love and miss youl

    I’m going to miss you man, you were there for me in some of my darkest times and I will always be grateful for that. One thing I will always remember about you is you had the ability to make me crack up laughing no matter what. Laughter definitely was your gift to the world. I can honestly say I won’t have made it through a lot of the struggles in my life without you. May you find peace now brother, absent in body here in spirit.

    I’m sorry to hear about your loss and wanted to share the Bible’s hope of a resurrection at John 5:28,29 at a time when there is no more sickness pain or death right here on earth according to Revelation 21:3,4.Please read these scriptures and may the god of comfort give you comfort in this time of bereavement.
