So saddened by the loss of John. What a wonderful man! We were blessed to have him and Juanita with us at Free Communion, and grew to love them very much! They sat in front of my mom and dad (Roy Hugh &Mildred Melton). My dad cut his hair (Model Barber Shop) and they became part of our community! Sweet sweet man! He even roomed next door to my grandmother at the cottage! He was a fine Christian example and will be missed. I loved looking at all the pictures on here. Such a great tribute. Thank you for sharing them! Praying for comfort for your family during this time. I truly believe that John is with our Heavenly Father now. I know you all will miss him, but I pray that you’ll be comforted because of the life John lived. Glad I was given the opportunity to know John and call him a friend.
In Christian love,
Lisa Melton Ramsey
Free Communion Church of Christ
