    Thinking and praying for all of you. John will surely be missed he was always friendly to everyone and became a friend to all he ever spoke to. I loved to hear him play his guitar. I have wonderful memories that I will always cherish about him from when he camped out with me and my children in my front yard in tents. He entertained all of us by playing his guitar by the campfire. He will surely be missed by all who ever knew him. If there is anything we can do for any of you please let us know.

    John, was my cousin. But I would say he was closer to me than even that. Uncle Jr always told me that my name was Sara Nowell Garrison Hartley Edwards. I grew up around John, Heather and Alvis.. always at their house. I remember the countless times John came out with his darth Vader mask on, and would scare me so bad! Along with his toothpicks dipped in ketchup, that he would put in his mouth like fangs. We have some great memories. I will always love you, and I miss you so much. I will make sure your children know you, and that they have everything they could possibly need. Thank you for loving our family so good, the way you did. Fly high, baby boy ❤
