    John was a very special friend. There was nothing U could ask John to do for U that he wouldn't do. Him and Dottie were worried about me and my family having to evacuate during the 2004 hurricane season and took all of us in including our pets. John was always a pleasure to be around and would never refuse anything anyone asked of him. I am definately going to miss him. I am here for U Dottie if U need anything.

    Jack will certainly be missed .He was always the guy who would make you laugh. I remember him chasing me around as a child biting my cheeks!. He in my eyes was uncle Crazy Jack. He will always have a place in my heart.

    Rest in Peace.
