  1. Dear Edy, Aunt Jane and all nefews and nices – so sorry for the loss. Uncle John was always such a treat. Growing up – he had the BEST Christmas presents for us, and his laugh was infectous. He was “The Cool Uncle” – young, and fun-loving. We’re grateful that he visited us here in Valparaiso, and he came to Melinda’s wedding along with Edy of course. Rest in peace Uncle John. We love you Edy.

    You will be deeply missed Uncle John. I have so many fond memories of you while I was growing up, and visiting with with grandma and grandpa in Virginia.
    You always made us all laugh with your silly jokes and all your shenanigans. You were such a joy to be around. You were our cool uncle!
    I know that grandma and grandpa, Uncle Jerry and all those who loved you were waiting to take you home.
    Until we all meet again.
    All my love,
    Your niece Patty

  3. So sorry Edy for your loss…our loss. Like Mike said Uncle John was the cool one. Grandma Carrie would get so mad sometimes. 😄 John’s personality always has been humorous light in a too dark a world. May our God grant him his reward, and to you&your family the peace that surpasses all understanding.
