John was such a blessing to me and my family.. Our church won\'t be the same without him. He never hesitated to do or say what the Lord put on his heart, and when he s ang and testified everyone got a blessing. My heart is broken, but I know he\'s rejoicing in Heaven. I\'ll see you over yonder.. What a day that will be! I love you John, thank you for being there for me.
