    John was a very dear friend and I shall miss him so very much. I am comforted to know he is peacefully at rest with his Lord Jesus Christ. My love and prayers go out to beautiful “Saint Maggie” without who he would not have lived 25 wonderful years after his liver transplant.

    I will miss John but will always remember our hunting adventures over the past few years. John was an avid hunter and a great outdoors man and I enjoyed listening to his many stories. John and his wife Maggie were part of a loving and Christian family and I was lucky to call them my friends.
