I (Sharon) met "Uncle John" when I was on my way to serve overseas. He warmly welcomed me into his family, introducing me to "Aunt Hazel," and "adopting" me as his niece. When I married Jason, he "adopted" him too, as he did with each of our four children as they came along. He faithfully prayed for us and generously supported us until the time of his death. He even remembered each of us on our birthdays every year. I spoke with him on the phone only 6 days before his death, and, as always, he had no complaints...only words of thanks and praise. He told me of God's goodness to him and how much he was enjoying spending time studying the Bible and other books, and in prayer and meditation. We will dearly miss "Uncle John," but it makes us smile to think of him continuing to spend time with his Saviour Jesus Christ, but now face to face.

I received a note from Uncle John today, mailed the day before he passed, and it warmed my heart. He never missed a birthday or anniversary. He was a wonderful, thoughtful and kind man. I know he will be miss by so many. Sending all our love to our extended family.
