So sorry to learn of John's passing. He was my supervisor years ago at Pee Dee Center. May the Lord comfort and sustain the family during this difficult time.

John will be sadly missed. He was such a kindhearted person. I'm so happy I was able to fulfill one of his last wishes, some fried pork chops. I understand the pain and grief our family is experiencing at this time and I pray for God's comfort to all. May John and Antoinne rest in Heavenly Paradise together forever.
