    Moody was such a wonderful friend I got to have in his later years of life! He was such a blessing and an inspiration to be around and his sweetness was so much like my husbands, that even my daughter who only met him fell in love with his spirit he exuberated to her! He will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved him that are still here. Till we meet again, Moody, RIP! Much love to his family and praying GOD provides all the comfort and help they need now and in the days to come! ❤️

    John Moody Presley and his two brothers, Jackson, and Charles Presley, were my heroes when I was growing up. One summer he was the featured youth camp speaker. He played softball with us, and cheer us to victory.

    He was a graduate of Asbury College, now Asbury University in Wilmore,KY. I played trombone and sousaphone in the United States Marine Corps in Quantico, VA. When I completed my three-year commitment in the Marines I attended one year of resident studies at Asbury College.

    Over the many years that have come and gone, I have maintained communications with Moody and his dear wife, Jane. I greatly treasure my friendship with the two lovely people of God.

    May God bless and bring comfort to Jane and her family in their time of grief.

    Your friend in all seasons,
