Flynt (his best buddy) of Bentonville, Ark., and Rita Walters of
Memphis, Tenn.; three grandchildren, Braxton, Reece and Hayden

Much love to you, my sweet friend.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Treasure the
memories and the good times, may you find comfort with them.
My love and sympathy go out to you, John fought a long battle. I have
several memories of him at the hospital and of course the last time I saw
him... May God be with you and give you peace in the coming days and
months. Our memories are always with us and we keep those we love
close in that way. Sorry I am not able to be there.
