Darlene, Allison, and Mandy,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I have such warm memories of Mr. John from my childhood. Growing up at Lakeview and Barnes and Wallace, he was always kind to me, and how well I remember his friendship with my sweet Uncle Travis. Please know that you and all of your family are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve. May God bless and comfort you.
Much love,
Mollie Moore
