When John married my mom (JoAnn), I knew he would be a blessing to her and our family. His evident faith and love for God glowed from his presence. His words of wisdom were always welcomed by me and all that were around him. A true man of God that will be missed on and in the earth. He goes to prepare a place for those that will follow him, and what a welcome that will be when that time comes. Thank you John for pointing and leading us in the right direction....Love always, Calvin L. Davis
