My prayers go out to John’s children, grandchild, brothers, and sister. Please know that he is in a better place and no longer suffering.

Cousin John and I spent time together when we were young and in our teens. We had some good times. Sad to see him go so soon.

John was a dear, understanding brother. I can remember moving into a new house our Dad had built in 1953, the year John was born. It was the same year we got out first TV. I can remember him sitting in front of the TV...must be when he gained his love of watching movies. He will be greatly missed.

To the Family Sorry to hear about John...Sorry I can not make it have a sick child...Just wanted all to know I’m thinking about all of you in this time..Leslie Parkins ( Ken Walling daughter)
