John: We who believe that to be absent from our bodies is to be present with the Lord know where you are now. And,for those of us that are left behind we realize that death is but a narrow starlite strip between the companionship of yesterday to happy reunion of tomorrow. Until then you will be sorely missed. Paul & Marlys Hampton

John, Your spirit will live on within all those you crossed paths with. Your presence will be missed deeply on a daily basis by those close to you, but you will watch over them and keep them safe. Remember to keep the noise down up there while you and Ant party. See you again one day.
